CARACAS.— Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez hosted the inaugural broadcast of Radio del Sur from the Caracas Municipal Theater.

Like Telesur, its television counterpart, Radio del Sur is aimed at broadcasting the truth and real culture of the Latin American people while contributing to regional unity and mutual awareness.

The inaugural broadcast featured an interview by Hugo Chavez of Argentinean President Cristina Fernandez who was accompanied by representatives from the Mothers and Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo and by Francisco Madariaga Quintela, one of the children kidnapped by the Argentinean dictatorship and the 101st grandchild whose real identity has been revealed.

The Argentine President sent her greetings to the new radio station that brings together community, public, private and university broadcasters in the Americas and the Caribbean, as well as from Africa and Asia. She spoke about the importance of Radio del Sur as a tool to defend regional sovereignty.

The official launch of the radio station on Thursday, February 25, 2010 comes on the anniversary of the birth of Argentinean, Chilean and Peruvian National Hero José de San Martín.

During the initial broadcast, Chavez also spoke with Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega and Bolivian President Evo Morales about current regional affairs.

Venezuelan journalist Nieves Valdés organized a segment gathering voices from around the South nations. Among the reoccurring themes was the impact of Cuban solidarity projects with South countries.

The coordinator of the Radio del Sur Project told the press that while the idea is to showcase South countries ideologically, other countries will also be involved. “We have a network of radio stations from Spain, Europe, etc. but only those with more of a focus on the people, on the ideals of social justice and equality.”
