The Orban government has revoked the license of the Hungarian citizen radio station “Civil Radio” after 24 years. The free radios in Baden-Württemberg are also threatened with being deported to the Internet if they are switched off in the future. What does this mean for the European civil society in the Danube region? How do the states deal with this and what possibilities are there to deal with it.

A live broadcast as part of “25 Years of Radio free FM” which would have taken place at the same time as the International Danube Festival without Corona. To be heard on July 9, 2020 at 16 h on free FM. Guests are Ákos Cserháti (Managing Director Civil Radio, Budapest), Predrag Novković (Assistant editor-in-chief O-Radio, Novi Sad), Michael Diesenreither, (Head of communications, Radio FRO, Linz), Sabine Fratzke (Radio free FM, Ulm). Moderation: Michael Nicolai (President AMARC Europe).
