Strike Radio is an open plat­form to live broad­cast and archive picket lines, strikes and protests. It acts as a tem­po­rary com­mu­ni­ca­tion plat­form dur­ing events, strikes or du­ra­tional po­lit­i­cal ac­tion, al­low­ing those who are not phys­i­cally in the same place to en­gage, tune in and feel part of a wider con­ver­sa­tion. Those at the heart of the event can share their ex­pe­ri­ence and broad­cast to a wider pe­riph­ery, en­abling an of-the-minute up­date in the ac­tions and move­ments of the protest or event.

The web­site is built as a cus­tom Wordpress theme us­ing Timber.

AG Old Face from Berthold Foundry and GlyphWorld Mountain by Leah Maldonado are used for text and dis­play.
