Help restore RFI's radio signal

Journaliste en Danger (JED) launched a campaign on 23 February 2010 to restore the FM signal of French public radio station Radio France Internationale (RFI) in the Democratic Republic of Congo: "Release the info, reopen RFI." JED is asking you to sign a petition, which will be sent to President Joseph Kabila.

In July 2009, the DRC government shut down RFI's FM signal throughout the country.

JED believes that suppressing the critical news stories provided by RFI is simply an effort to silence all dissenting voices. The government's decision has seriously affected the general public, which cannot afford Internet and satellite options, relying on radio for access to information relevant to their lives.
