I am an African – #AfricaDay

Join us as we celebrate all that makes us African. As Africa’s oldest community radio station project, this day has a special significance to us.

#Elections2019 over, but now the work begins

16/05/2019

It has been a hectic couple of months at Bush Radio as we provided debates with all the political parties, encouraging listeners to vote, covering the voting stations and the results as they became available.

We would like to thank all the people involved in making sure we kept everyone up to speed on making their mark.

A special thank you to our listeners, volunteers, supporters and the Western Cape IEC team headed by Courtney Sampson and their media office, Trevor Davids and Olivia Nagan.

Bush Radio will continue our work to promote building democracy and expand on its “Democracy is not a spectator sport” philosophy.

Spread the word #worldpressfreedomday

02/05/2019

wpfd_2019_a3_final_enWorld Press Freedom day (3 May) is a date which celebrates the principles of press freedom, to evaluate and defend the media from attacks on their independence and to pay tribute to journalists who have lost their lives in the exercise of their profession.

World Press Freedom day also acts as a reminder to governments of the need to respect and commitment to press freedom.

It serves as an occasion to inform citizens of violations of press freedom – a reminder that in dozens of countries around the world, publications are censored, fined, suspended and closed down, while journalists, editors and publishers are harassed, attacked, detained and even murdered.

your voice

World Press Freedom Day was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in 1993 following a Recommendation adopted at the twenty-sixth session of UNESCO’s General Conference in 1991. This in turn was a response to a call by African journalists who in 1991 produced the Windhoek Declaration on media pluralism and independence.

Bush Radio staff and interns took part in a two day workshop to get their level 1 first aid certification. It was hard work but the guys enjoyed it.

We think Kholeka deserves an Oscar for her performance as an injured patient.

Thanks to Donovan from Safe Tech for conducting the course.

Background to Community House

Community House situated in Salt River, Cape Town is a unique and historic site of living heritage. It has always been known as a site of activism from around the mid 1980s which has shaped and continues to shape the socio-political landscape of its extended communities. The building itself houses NGO’s and Trade Unions as well as a labour and community history museum centered on the Trade Union Library and its archive. It presently houses twenty-four organizations that focus on labour research, popular education, gender advocacy, HIV/AIDS education, environmental issues, youth development, media production and union organization.

In the mid-1980s, anti-apartheid trade unions and civic and service organizations began searching for a new headquarters for their resistance campaign. The Western Province Council of Churches (WPCC) and an NGO, the Social Change Assistance Trust (SCAT) met this need. They purchased a dilapidated auto-workshop in Salt River, an area known for its textile and light metal factories and which marks the origins of industrial unions in the province.

The site was declared a provincial heritage site in 2010.
