Amnesty Global Shortwave Radio Channel for Detainee Families

Amnesty can transit messages from families of detainees globally on a shortwave frequency.

Written by

Amnesty can transit messages from families of detainees globally on a shortwave frequency. This can build solidarity among the families and garner support for the plight of the detainees. And the detainees themselves might be listening.

What kind of resources are needed to get this idea off the ground and/or support it over time?

Shortwave Radio Station

How could this idea also be adapted to work in low-tech situations?

Local Amnesty affiliates can rebroadcast the messages on AM frequencies. The original SW broadcast can also be streamed or podcast on the web for targeted (country-specific) rebroadcasting.
