The Falkland Islands Government has launched a new social media campaign focusing on putting Islanders’ voices at the forefront. Starting this week a series of short films and pictures will appear on the Government digital media channels on Twitter, YouTube and Facebook.

 The campaign aims to dispel some of the mistruths circulated by the Government of Argentina and highlight that the people of the Falkland Islands are the key stakeholders in their future.

A number of Islanders feature in the campaign’s short videos and photographs which carry the hashtag #MyVoiceMatters.

Some of the #MyVoiceMatters content is in Spanish, with the hashtags #MiVozCuenta and #MiVozImporta and are aimed at the Spanish-speaking audience throughout the Americas.

Everyone can join in the campaign by re-tweeting or sharing the images and videos which will appear on FIG’s media channels over the coming weeks.

Check out FalklandsGov; FIG Twitter: @FalklandsGov and the Falkland Islands Government Facebook like and share to add your voice to the campaign and show that as a people we really do matter. (PN)
