Radio Oxyjeune gives power to the people

Senegal October 25, 2006 - A popular community radio station named Radio Oxyjeune, which broadcasts to a poor suburb of Senegal's capital, Dakar, not only pumps out music, but takes an active role in its listeners' lives. A staff of 50 people work at the station. The name of the station tries to capture some of its mission as it is a conjunction of the French words for "oxygen" and "youth". It has phone-in shows that regularly tackle subjects many consider taboo such as HIV/AIDS and women's rightsand immigration. ©Jean-Michel Clajot
