SNRL1984-2014: 30 years of freedom of information.

2004-2014: 10 years of Syndicat.

Le Syndicat National des Radios Libres celebrates its 10th Anniversary in Paris between 19th, 20th and 21st of November. This Conference is celebrated among the challenges of media pluralism, freedom of expression, cultural diversity and social proximity communication in French society. Moreover, it tries to channel the battles about digital convergence and for the access to the air waves.

In this context, in the SNRL there are 630 associative radio stations, 2100 employees and tens of thousands of volunteers working to have their place as part of the current french audiovisual landscape.

Emmanuel Boutterin, President of the SNRL, reinforces the idea of working together:  In the field of broadcasting and social issues, we have also learned to work together and build alliances with the public service and commercial radio sector. It must be understood that all broadcast TV, radio and film are at the stage of building new power at national and global level. We cannot loose what our predecessors have managed to build with courage and conviction. They have shown the way, be worthy of their thinking and their achievements. The historic slogan SNRL takes on its meaning: “Together we are stronger!”
