OBradio needs your help! We are in the process of changes, and need your assistance. OBradio is an internet radio station that was started 6 months ago by members of Occupy Boston in an effort to broadcast the voice of the 99 percent, as well as , illustrating the injustices of the world, and spreading information on the struggles and success’ of the movement. In the past 6 months OBradio has gone from simply broadcasting on the spot interviews with occupiers from Dewey Square and General Assemblies, to producing 12 original show’s on a weekly basis. The shows on Obradio cover all angles of the struggles of humanity from oppression worldwide to economic injustices to educational programming and lectures.
We have gone from broadcasting anywhere we could, to a buildout of a studio at the E5 facility in Chinatown, which is a part of Boston near Dewey Square. In this process we have leapt technical hurdles weekly in order to get to the point that we are today.
The facility in which we broadcast from is called E5, or rather Encuentro Cinco. E5 houses 20+ organizations that are all oriented toward the liberties of all people’s in many facets. E5 was instrumental in providing a space for meetings, organization, educational conferences, and media development for Occupy Boston from the very beginning. OBradio has in this time come to rent a space from E5 in which a studio was built, and we broadcast from today.
E5 recently was informed that it’s space at 33 harrison, in Chinatown, would no longer be available for it to rent, and as a result OBradio, and the rest of the organizations at E5 must move at the end of July 2012. E5 is in the process of acquiring another space that will accommodate the organizations.that utilize the space at 33 Harrison.
This means that OBradio will need to move from the current location, and also will need to build out an appropriate space for a studio, and of course pay rent for the studio space. For this we need your help. We need your donations, big and small, in order to continue broadcasting. We have a goal of reaching $3,000.00 by the end of this month. This will allow us to be able to have a smooth transition from the current space to the next, and also continue the work that we are doing to build the many voices of the 99 percent.
