Ovi magazine

Issue 13 of the Ovi magazine features the topic 'Radio'.

Ovi magazine is a monthly social, political and cultural opinionated magazine in the sense that society, politics, culture and art meet. Our target is people like us, people who are aware of the world in which they live, aware politically and environmentally without that meaning that we are either left or right. Each individual member of the Ovi magazine has his or her own ideas, but we all respect certain issues. We are against any kind of ignorance, hate or discrimination that has either to do with colour, social class, sexual orientation or social issues. Each of us is free to express their ideas and philosophy, so long as it doesn't offend our moral decency. We wholeheartedly believe in the phrase commonly misattributed to Voltaire, "I do not agree with what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it."
