Unemployed Spanish youth take to airwaves

Group of educated and unemployed young people launch radio station to protest against their plight.

    With half of Spain's under-25 population unemployed, may young people feel marginalised by the country's economic crisis.

    Named after the gathering places of ancient Greece, and the anti-capitalist street protests of modern Madrid, Agora Sol Radio is run by educated and unemployed young people, who use it as a means of protest against their plight.
