I am Moro Yapha, from the Gambia, born on the 14-June-1990.

I am a radio maker and human rights advocate. I am a founding member of Wearebornfree! Empowerment Media and a board member of the RadioNetzwerk Berlin e.V.

I use social media, conducts lectures and workshops that focus on gender equality and on empowering women, minorities, and refugees most especially.

In 2015 August I met my colleagues  in Berlin, refugee activist Muhammed Lamin Jadama and Bino through Oplatz movement in Berlin. And in 2016 I joined them to build the concept of Wearebornfree! Empowerment Radio to develop Radio and Media as our daily activist platform.

And My aim and motivation of doing radio is by creating a platform and space to express myself freely and willingly through everyday politic and social activism and advocacy for the minorities and marginalized people or groups in our communities and societies.

I speak on behalf of the voiceless, and never under estimate the power of your voice!

Muhammed

My name is Muhammed Lamin Jadama, I was born and raised in the SeneGambia region. I lived in Italy where I experienced and faced many difficult circumstances during and after the asylum process.
In 2009, I worked in farms to survive but also to have different experience for some months, then I later moved to Milan where I worked as a journalist for an online newspaper called Afronline for about a year.
In October 2011, I decided to move to Berlin for a new adventure. And also with a very little expectations because of my status which, due to the Dublin regulations, did not allow me to work here in Germany and stay for more than 90 days.
Since 2010, I have always been on the ground, closely tracing the quiet and dramatic moments of refugees’ daily life in Europe.
I used my camera for shooting pictures and documenting the situation of refugees and immigrants in many European countries including the 2012-2014 Oranienplatz refugee occupation camp in Berlin.
My wish is to make the unbearable situation of refugees and immigrants and their struggles in daily life visible.

Bino

I am Bino Byansi Byakuleka formerly known as Patras Bwansi Ugandan born in 1979.
A diploma holder in Industrial art and design, and also an Iconographer. In 2010 August became a refugee in Germany and 2012 August started a protest tent in Passau Klostagarten. In October I joined the big refugee protest camp in Berlin at Oranienplatz- Kreuzberg. I became more political and in late 2013 I funded the African Refugees Union(ARU) and recently I came up with a campaign “WE ARE BORN FREE! MY RIGHT IS YOUR RIGHT!” lobbying for HUMANITY SUPPORT
In 2014 I published a book: Mein Name ist Bino Byansi Byakuleka and wrote many articles.

It’s due to my experience I have passed through and the current situation of refugees in Germany and Europe that forced and empowered me to stand up and said: “I gonna start a radio!” For instance, the current wave of welcoming culture is very important in order to show alternatives to the racist hatred that is getting stronger each day. At the same time, this wave comes exactly at the time when our refugee movement has become very weak to almost not-existing anymore. The so-called civil society chooses to be in the helping position instead of supporting self-organized refugee resistance. This is a step back, it puts us back to being the helped supposedly passive object while the helpers are becoming a new lobby.

Therefore I came out with these questions below:

How can we deal with these developments? How can we come out of the watching, the passive position, back into the acting, proactive, demanding one? How to organize a protest against the horrible law changes which are not (much) considered by helpers and white charity?

In January 2016 I started a radio “Wearebornfree! Empowerment Radio(We!R)” as a political strategy to over the mainstream media and make our voices stronger and visible.
WE!R serves as a platform for empowerment to both refugees and friends. Focusing on refugee women, children and LGBTIQ relatively and other issues such as sexism, homophobia, nationalism and among others that have been neglected in the refugee movement.
It is also as a network to reach those we cannot reach through street protests politically, socially/ culturally, scientifically, economically and spiritually.
