Amenazas a Radio Victoria en El Salvador Assassinations in the Cabañas region have targeted environmentalists and labor leaders. Radio Victoria is a local FM community radio station that transmits from the town of Victoria in the northern hills of El Salvador. The station has come under increasing threat from armed actors for covering the news of the assassinations and for providing a voice to anti-mining activists. The Radio is run primarily by youth who live in the nearby communities. Radio Victoria was started in 1993 to provide residents in this poor, rural area with their own means of communication. Many of the communities in this area are isolated and have no access to telephone services, mail or newspaper delivery.
