Peru: “Emergency FM Station Goes on the Air in Pisco”

Jefe del Estado anuncia instalación de radio emergencia en Pisco: “Chief of state [Alan Garcia] announced installation of emergency radio in Pisco.” La República (Lima, Peru) reports.

The government shut down Radio Orión, whose owner (above) — there are a few YouTube clips of the man’s broadcasts floating around, and I plan to subtitle you one when I get a chance — has been charging that relief donations are being sucked up by massive graft.

When the earthquake struck, the government agency that monitors seismic activity reported that the epicenter was located inland and that the quake was much weaker — 6.9, according to the BBC. U.S. seismologists pegged the quake at 7.9, with an epicenter located offshore. Again, so reported the BBC.

This fellow talks about tsunami effects, meanwhile. And I believe I have seen Univision footage of boats that seem to have migrated an awfully long way inland under their own eerie, amphibious power — or with the help of ghosts, maybe.

El jefe del Estado, Alan García Pérez, anunció la instalación de una radio de emergencia en esa ciudad portuaria vía las ondas de Radio Nacional, a fin de informar de manera exclusiva y permanente sobre las labores de ayuda y reconstrucción a la población.

President García announced the installation of an emergency radio station in the port city that will carry Radio Nacional, for the purpose of serving as the permanent and exclusive source of information on the aid and reconstruction work for the people there.

Precisó que la pequeña emisora, que se instalará en Pisco, se difundirá en la onda 90.9 de la frecuencia modulada.

He added that the small broadcaster, to be installed in Pisco, will broadcast on 90.9 FM.


“La decisión es poner una pequeña emisora en la onda 90.9, una radio emergencia de Radio Nacional para informales a la población sobre sus derechos, subsidios, que se informen sobre la entrega de casas, alimentos, del inicio de clases, qué colegios están operativos o si viene una jornada médica”, manifestó.

“The decision is to put a small radio station on 90.9 FM, an emergency station of Radio Nacional in order to inform the population of their rights, subsidies, inform them about the delivery of housing, food, the start of classes, what high schools are functioning or when a medical day is coming,” he said.

Recalcó que el gobierno y equipo de reconstrucción de Pisco necesita informar de manera continua a la población pisqueña sobre los avances de este proceso.

He said the government and the reconstruction team in Pisco need to inform the people in a sustained manner about the gains made in this process.

Because there have been no setbacks, I guess.

Garcia: “Listen, who told you you had a vote in this matter?” Carlin, in
La República.

Asimismo, señaló que el cierre de Radio Orión en Pisco no constituye un ataque a la libertad de prensa, solo responde a una medida adoptada por el ministerio de Transportes y Comunicaciones a fin de evitar la proliferación de radios clandestinas.

At the same time, he stated that the closure of Radio Orión in Pisco does not constitute an attack on freedom of the press, but only responds to a measure adopted by the Ministry of Transportation and Communications to avoid the proliferation of underground radio stations.

God forbid that Peruvian fans of C.W. McCall’s “Convoy” should get up and running and start comparing notes.

Sostuvo que otras 15 radios piratas fueron cerradas por encontrarse en una ilegalidad manifiesta, al no cumplir las leyes.

He said that another 15 pirate radio stations were closed after being found in a state of manifest illegality because they were not complying with the law.

Recalcó que la radio es un servicio público para informar a la población y no para utilizarlas para satisfacer sus propios intereses. (Con información de Andina)

He added that radio is a public service to inform the population and not to be used to satisfy private interests.

Wow.

Alan “Free Trade Agreement” Garcia and his merry band of Opus Dei supernumeraries take to channeling the rhetoric of Hugo Chávez. Weird.
