THE announcement today by the organisers of the general strike in the Magallanes Region of Chile that there will be some “flexibility” in the road blocks currently in place outside the city of Punta Arenas will no doubt cause some easing of the pressure on the Chilean President to find a solution.

    Come on Magallanes, lead the way to federalism in chile.

    Arg & Chile border means peace, commerce & interaction.

    Instead militarism chile should develop magallanes, argentina only want development and is not a treat and because we are united against colonialism. Help Argentina magallean mates.

    “More dramatic even has been the case of some hundreds of stranded Argentinean citizens, mainly tourists, but also including lorry drivers who have not been able to get home either by air or by road due to the road blocks.”

    Ah ah: Chileans blockading Argentine Tierra del Fuego. Now there's a turn up for the books. And they are squealing quickly. When will Ushuaia suffer from a fresh food shortage?

    #4 disappointing to see how you label your Chilean neighbours. It is little wonder the magallanes people have little to no time for your country when you write like that and restrict them from guaranteed gas supplies. How good is Argentina's word? Answer - nothing.
    Soon we will have gas supplies to offer our Chilean friends - maybe that will cement the red-white-blue solidarity between us, and assist the demise of the sun and its daft consitution which you blindly promote. Stick with Ushuaia we don't need you.

    Well, of course we know “some” few neighbors are anti-Chilean, but they are the same that are ruling their county, sorryly.
    They cut us a contracted gas supply, they invented a SENASA fee againts the bilateral Road Transit signed with no fees for any paperwork, a so on...And, yes the Argentine's Gvt. word means nothing for us with long term experiences (Non controversial borders arrangement treaty under the Britain Crown judgement denied as nule by them, in example).
    The most of Argentines are common sense people that are not enemies of their neighbors but good peace lovers, trying to live taking care of their families and business.
