Anden village radio FM Pirca muted
That regime now also assaults a micro radio is not pure random.
One can go the famous extra mile, but fact is, that the policy of Macristen regime in its general line is, let's say this way, quite rare.
Massive dismissals ordered by the government, violent repression against any kind of social protest, pension cuts and withholds/deny of medicaments for retirees and disabled people, political prisoners, disappeared and murdered persons by armed units of the regime, the creation of millions of new poor, uncontrolled rising taxes and prices, indebtedness of the state in foreign countries, presidential front dummies and ferocious nepotism, and the looting of state treasuries in private interests, and sending of money found in such looting to safe countries, etc. etc., characterize from the beginning the era of the honorable President Macri and his strange colleagues.
On the one hand in order to prevent that the murky maneuvers of the pro-regime group which settles in a range between alcoholism (Minister Bullrich), drug environment (Mother Carrio) and money laundering (clan Macri, the heroes of Panama Papers) come up to light, and, on the other hand, based on personal revenges of some soldiers of that troop, the Macrism regime, of course, wouldn't stop in front of the Argentinean media landscape also (which in its better time, which wasn't a neoliberal era, was characterized by wide diversity)

Thus, the media were aligned to the regime's line in any possible way, such as bribes and nice gifts to journalists and also to some some who claim to be journalists.
There were only a few left, eg. the Roberto Navarro (journalist of radio and TV) and his team, who were dismissed a few weeks ago by order of the regime.
It would have been because, not only that in their daily broadcasts they spoke of alleged mismanagement, bribes and fines, tax evasion, money laundering by the illustrious members of the regime, but in all these programs there was always a certain space for the humor: the comedian Pedro Rosemblat, alias the Cadet, told and analized in his particular way what happened during the day.
And to laugh, there remains nothing, said the regime somberly, and put an end to this.
Some days later, during a radio interview with former President C. Kirchner, the only thing that could be heard was a strange noise (a rogue who thinks the cause was something more than a technical defect), and in order that no one could complain, at the same time (by hazard) was suspended the Twitter account of the transmitter.
Things that happen, when someone's cleaning his house.
Although it could never be located near the political center (left or socially committed, not to speak off), this group of transmission (C5N, Radio10) nevertheless was the home of journalists not so faithful to the regime, like the mentioned Roberto Navarro.
Finally, to end up with this plague of non-aligned journalists, the state ordered the sale of this broadcasting group to a new owner, a third-class rally driver for the Paris-Dakar rally.
He takes it (for being a good friend, and he also needs to live from something) at a spectacularly cheap price, and any free speech, uncensored opinion there becomes past.
Other transmitters also walk along a very rustic path:
Late-night commentator Jorge Asis was just silenced, or even the children's channel Paka Paka (in order to avoid political overflowing by babies) was urgently transferred to a newly created private enterprise of the Commissioner for Media of the Macrism regime.
One hand washes the other.
And believing that censorship and repression are limited to the media with a lot of audience is to err in an ugly manner, like already mentioned at the beginning:
At FM Pirca, the only radio transmitter in a village of 6000 souls in the middle of the Andes mountains, the broadcast license was removed in these days.
Official reason: In a random control some well dressed inspectors found that the antenna was too short (or too long, or had a curve or something), and gave the radio a period of 5 days to replace it with a cute and expensive, but new antenna (which seems to be a bit difficult to realize in an Andean village with a predominantly indigenous population for a radio station without income).
But there are also rumors (they must be of bad tongues) that among other, nacional and local folk groups, also folk bands of bordering countries (enemy countries, might be supposed???) sang in this radio their songs and, that already in advance, reports about environmental sins of the gold miners (North American companies to which the honorable President Macri also has shares) should be prevented in all circumstances.
FM Pirca has never received any subsidy, has no advertising revenue for being a village broadcaster. But, as already said, because of the antenna too twisted (or something like that) after 23 years of transmission operation, to shut down the radio was ordered by the regime.
There is no reason to celebrate - isn't it?
Yes, there is reason to celebrate, says the radio:
Pirca FM radio invites to celebrate its own funeral with a great folkloric party in Las Pircas the 21 of October under the motto we die to be reborn (morimos para renacer).
Many groups of music and folklore of many regions and towns have announced their arrival as well as all the 6000 inhabitants of Las Pircas village.
