Radio IBERO: an “alternative space” on the air in Mexico City


Do you contribute to the mission of the Society of Jesus? Attention to the poorest, support for young people, concern for the environment, openness to paths that lead to God?

Yes. I haven’t talked about ecology, but we have a specific series on this subject; a weekly program on human rights, another on gender issues. So these subjects are necessarily present on the air every week. But these themes are also mentioned throughout the program, in other programs.

We have links with Jesuit organizations, such as the PRO center and CIAS (Centre for Research and Social Action). For example, an indigenous woman from Guatemala was recently released after eight months of wrongful imprisonment. The university’s migration department, together with Jesuit organizations, had campaigned for his release. Other media had briefly reported on the case; we have made it a central theme.

In conclusion, what makes you particularly proud as director of Radio IBERO?

I am proud that the station allows artists, groups of musicians, people involved in civil society, victims of human rights violations to be heard. All these people are grateful to our station, which offers a space for raising awareness and openness, complementary to other communication media. In the end, if it is true that IBERO 90.9 is not a political space, it is a space for reflection that offers university students a field of freedom on an ethical background, an environment where they are directly connected to real actors. of the society.
