Al-Ahwaz TV, an independent, grass-roots broadcaster transmitting to the Ahwazi Arab homeland, is now available on-line at www.ahwazmedia.tv.
Al-Ahwaz TV has been transmitting to the Ahwazi homeland in Iran since 2004, broadcast on the Assyrian television channel.
The station and its journalists are supported by a number of Ahwazi non-governmental organisations and their supporters, including the Democratic Solidarity Party of Al-Ahwaz and the British Ahwazi Friendship Society.
It promotes non-violent opposition to the Iranian regime and advocates democratic change, focussing on the Ahwazi Arabs, who are indigenous to south-west Iran. Al-Ahwaz TV seeks to hand the media back to the Ahwazis, who are oppressed, marginalised and discriminated against.
Al-Ahwaz TV is not supported by any government or government-funded institution. It is run, staffed and owned by Ahwazi Arabs and run by a democratic editorial collective.
