Latin Waves Media

Current Affairs >

Latin Waves covers local/national and international issues making those critical political connections, we bring our listeners in-depth coverage of issues with a focus on the history of an issue and what that history means for us today and most importantly what we can do to move society forward in a healthy way. In short our show is focused on building community across borders, positive social change has only come through communities of interest working together. Latin Waves wants to mediate this change and create a more just equalitarian society. Many citizens are jaded and have given up on change which shows in low voter turnout, what is needed is a new political imagination We are non corporate which means we can cover any story we wish unfiltered and uncensored and are beholden only to the public interest. Our society is in crisis, we have a financial, environmental and social meltdown with unresponsive governments. Another World is possible and that depends on us working together.
