In November 2013, Queer Radio was chosen by an independent panel of judges to win the CAN Awards 2013 Media Award. The Community Action Network Awards were first introduced in 1997 to recognize achievement that is positive and makes a difference in the inner city areas of Brisbane. Coordinated by the New Farm Neighbourhood Centre, the award citation reads "For excellence in journalism/social media which promotes the social inclusion and equality for all".
Polish small farmers blockade the country's highways in protest
The farmers have four main demands, including legislation to protect Polish citizens’ ability to own Polish land, change to inheritance laws to include leased land, banning of genetically modified organisms, and relaxation of strict health and safety laws which prevent small scale farmers from selling their food onsite or at local markets.
The protests have been going on for a year, but have escalated in the last month, spurred on by the EU ban on exporting to Russia, which has forced down food prices in Poland.
