Full article 66 comments

Argentina is in state of shock following the death of a seven-year old aborigine of malnutrition which turned into a complicated case of TB. The child belonged to the Qom indigenous community in Chaco, northern Argentina that has been forced to a life of deprivation and despair because on ongoing battles over the possession of reservation lands.

    I wonder how many people actually understood a word Capitanich said? Typical political yatter. Allow me to translate. What he really said was that he was about to spout some drivel. The 'government' is full of consternation because it can be seen that the 'government' can't blame anyone else for this one and it is 'government' policies that have driven the Qom people into a life of deprivation. Meanwhile, the 'health infrastructure' and 'social inclusion' has been promoted giving appropriate people the opportunity to cream off more money. Whilst not exactly lying, he was careful to identify this murder as an 'isolated case'. So different to having people, including children, being knocked down by police vehicles and left for dead. Also different to having children etc beaten up by Federal Police. Why do they call them 'Federal Police'? In the good old days they were called the Schutzstaffel (SS) and were backed up by the Geheime Staatspolizei (Gestapo).

    Meanwhile, the local paid collaborator is off on holiday. I wonder if he will ponder over what part of his 'vacation' is actually paid for by the lives of the people whose lands he's stolen? Mind you, he's not alone. How many argies have got enough brain to concern themselves with what they have stolen and how many people they condemn to deprivation and death? How many argies are complicit in murder?

    Capitanich, a typical Argie says he is sorry the little boy died ( they could have sent him to a decent country for treatment ) but look on the good side, look what we have achieved. He should have said he was sorry the boy died we did everything we could to save his life, but no, they turn these things into a political football. What a bunch of wankers.

    “We have to fight against 50 years of indifference,” Capitanich said in reference to Chaco province. “Unprecedented infrastructure investment has been made,” he added.

    bullshit.
    capitanich, insfrán, kirchner, etc, only build hospitals pour la galerie in provinces like chaco and formosa.
    the fact is most of the new hospitals has not the equipment required.

    the main cause of the death of qom, tobas, etc are starvation and disease related with poverty.

    in the meantime, these fucking politicians spend + U$S 900.000 to rent 3 different airplanes for 4 fucking officers to go to the same place and to rent a private jet to go to australia.

    Last two years I had two weeks. This year I only have one this time because I took one last November. One week is good enough.

    The Indians need to start getting educated. One can educate oneself. That way they can get out of their reservation, which should be made illegal btw.

    There should be no reservations. That creates division.

    the arg government under cfk claims with great roar the colonisation of the falkland islands.
    but what about the landrobbers of the former argentina?
    what about the colonisation of the homelands of the indigenous? look what wikipedia says:

    ”The area now known as Argentina was relatively sparsely populated until the period of European colonization. The earliest traces of human life are dated from the Paleolithic period, and there are further traces in the Mesolithic and Neolithic.[1] However, large areas of the interior and piedmont were apparently depopulated during an extensive dry period between 4000 and 2000 B.C.[2]
    The Uruguayan archaeologist Raúl Campá Soler divided the indigenous peoples in Argentina into three main groups: basic hunters and food gatherers, without development of pottery, advanced gatherers and hunters, and basic farmers with pottery.[3] The second group could be found in the Pampa and south of Patagonia, and the third one included the Charrúas and Minuane people and the Guaraníes.
    Some of the different groups included the Onas at Tierra del Fuego, the Yámana at the archipelago between the Beagle Channel and Cape Horn, Tehuelches in the Patagonia, many peoples at the litoral, guaycurúes and wichis at Chaco. The Guaraníes had expanded across large areas of South America, but settled in the northeastern provinces of Argentina. The Toba (Komlek) nation and the Diaguita which included the Calchaqui and the Quilmes lived in the North and the Comechingones in what is today the province of Cordoba. The Charrua (which included the Minuane people), yaros, Bohanes and Chanás (and Chaná-Timbú) were located in the actual territory of Entre Ríos and the Querandí in Buenos Aires.

    Hospital:-
    Specialist services are provided by a range of visiting consultants; these include Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Ophthalmology, Psychiatry, Orthopaedics, ENT and Oral & Maxillo-facial surgery. Patients who cannot wait for their visits, or who need access to other diagnostic or treatment services, are referred either to UK hospitals under a reciprocal agreement with the UK NHS, or, increasingly, to Santiago. Patients who need emergency treatment that the hospital cannot provide may be flown by air ambulance to Chile or Uruguay.
    Seems satisfactory to me.
    College:-
    Those students who achieve appropriate grades are funded for A level courses at Peter Symonds’ Sixth Form College, Winchester or to attend Chichester College to acquire National Diplomas or NVQs. The Government also offers grants to attend Higher Education courses, mainly in the UK.
    Degree courses are available in the UK.
    You do realise that the population of the Falklands is approx 3000 of which the age group for university education is about 240 max. This would extrapolate to a university population of about 100+ suitable scholars.
    You expect that ANY population would fund a university and staff it to supply multiple degree courses for that amount of students.
    Take medical or veterinary courses requiring access to either a large farming community or for medical training, proximity to teaching hospitals.
    Neither of these is applicable to the Falklands. Does Ushaia have either veterinary or medical schools ?

    In the UK there are 7 world ranking veterinary colleges for a population of 63 million and 32 for medical training.
    Do you seriously think that either of these could be practicable in the Falklands The bottom line is that they have no wish to associate with a country which is ruled by a bunch of crooks and a highly unstable population whose main pastime is burning tyres and throwing rocks.
    Your pathological hatred of the island community clouds whatever judgement you possess.

    @18 Pauly we can afford a CT scanner, it's just cheaper to send people to Clínica Alemana in Santiago, also if we did have a CT scanner it would barely be used anyway because of our small population. We also have the means to build a college and university, but why bother when it is cheaper to send students away, fully paid by FIG, to any University of there choosing, as long as they meet the Universities grades. I mean my high school year consisted of about 30 people, about half of them have been to college for some form of further education, be it academic or practical. So basically at any one time we would have about 40-50 people at this university, what would be the point? So in some lectures you would have like 2 people, it would be ridiculous and incredibly expensive to run. I hope this has made you realize that your arguments about CT scanners and such is retarded.

    21. Paul, first of all you are Argentinian and I am American it goes without saying I am smarter than you, more traveled, more educated and more realistic.
    The Falklanders are the richest community by far than any other in South America. If they wanted, and if they needed a CT scanner they'd buy one. I guess they don't need it.
    Doesn't that make sense to you?
    I think if one of them is having medical care they'd go to the USA UK. They can afford to go anywhere they want, for school, medical care, vacation anywhere any time.
    You can't even buy a U$20 without filling out 100s of forms and then being denied.

Also, have you forgotten that Osvaldo Ardiles crashed his car here, he was treated here (needed twenty stitches) and flown back to Argentina to recover, he also said how excellent his treatment was here and thanked everyone involved. Or the Argentine veterans shortly afterwards, who crashed there car by driving like morons, the search and rescue helicopter was there in under half an hour, unfortunately there's was a serious crash, those who died would have if the medical crew got there in 5 minutes. These are things we just deal with, not a pansy like you complaining about CT scanners, sometimes life here can be difficult and have its challenges but we simply man up and carry on, what would do?

    Try engaging brain before touching keyboard !
    Your quote:-
    (again, it seems you dont understand the concept of emergency or urgency.)
    I would agree that YOU do not..
    In the case of a suspected malignant brain tumour, this can be initially diagnosed by a General Practitioner. The patient then would be given a CT scan and then referred to an Onchologist for treatment. This would consist of surgery, radio- therapy and possibly chemo- therapy at a specialist unit.
    If the CT scan was carried out in the Falklands and the result was a positive indication of a tumour then the patient would have to be evacuated to a specialist hospital for treatment. So there is no advantage medically for the scan to be carried out in the Falklands, hence no need for a CT Scanner and specialist staff to operate it .
    What are your medical qualifications ? Like me probably none.
    However I have a son-in law who is a consultant surgeon in Edinburgh who has done two years post graduate work in cancer research. My sister was a lecturer in the College of Nursing in Glasgow. I put your thoughts to them and , guess what, they said that you hadn't a clue about what you were saying.

    Paul, whats with you about a CT Scanner? CFK had a sprain or fracture of her foot and travelled to BA because the CT scanner did not work in Rio Gallegas. ( correct ?) How long is the flight to BA from Rio Gallegas? Probably longer than a flight from THE FALKLANDS to Chile.

    can you be more boludo?
    i guess not.
    i am talking about a serious car accident, you tw@t, not the one ardiles had because of a stray sheep lol.

    rest of the isleters
    this is not a competition, you retarded isleters.
    of course the fact that the ct scanner of santa cruz is not working, only shows the kind of 3rd world country we are, and it is totally reprehensible.

    the thing here, you geniuses, is that you approve everything what your useless government does.
    you fill your mouth about your economy and you cannot afford a decent hospital or basic diagnostic instruments.

    you are a joke.

    @57 It wasn't a sheep that caused them to crash you retard, they were speeding on a gravel road and lost control, and yes we do have far more serious crashes here, like the one I mentioned in the previous comment about the argentine veterans, and there have been others, but a ct scanner would not have saved them. And how do you know what our hospital is like, you have never been here you retard

    It is the worst news since I can remember, worse than any other, is a tremendous tragedy for Argentine, a country that can feed more than 400 million people. The people QOM is ignored by corrupt politicians in the province of Chaco, even those same politicians sent by train to my city many people QOM, which find here the education and medical assistance can not be found in the Chaco.

    It is a national shame that the Government of CFK, DO NOT ASK FOR PARDON AND GIVE EXPLANATIONS TO THE FAMILY OF BOY AND THE REST OF THE ARGENTINE FOR THIS NATIONAL TRAGEDY. THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE BY OUR NATIONAL CONSTITUTION BRING HEALTH AND EDUCATION FOR ALL THE MORE THAN 40 MILLION OF ARGENTINOS.

    CAPITANICH IS A DISASTER AND DEPUTY DIANA CONTI ANNOUNCES BY THE MEDIA TO THE FAULT IS OF THE FAMILY OF BOY !!!!!!!!!

    I wonder, both Capitanich and Conti, are crazy? and not even realize the BOLUDESES say both. Better than your mouth shut.

    Where are the groups of Argentine human rights now? This is the time to act for them, or just worried the desapeared of the genocidal dictatorship .

    Madam President: Human Rights have all the 40 million Argentines, “not only a lucky few”

    I wonder, both Capitanich and Conti, are crazy? and not even realize the pelotudeces say both. Better than your mouth shut.

    agree.
    as you have said, it seems that for bonafini, verbitsky and barnes de carlotto, the only human rights that count are theirs.

    since the government has filled their mouths with money, they do not say a word about cases like this, except to justify the absence of hospitals, drinking water or arable lands in the qom community.

    Nestor asked his grandfather eat an apple, but had no money to buy a single apple.

    I'M SURE THAT THE SMALL NESTOR IS IN ARMS OF THE VIRGIN MARY AND SURROUNDED BY ANGELS,

    We are a ignorant nation that only protest in the Plaza de Mayo when the banks steal our savingsand, but not protest when thousands of Argentine brothers in the north of the country suffer from malnutrition, tuberculosis and chagas. At this time another boy of 16 years , Carlos Caceres, dies for same reason, another victim of political corruption

    AND THE ONLY THING THAT NESTOR WANTED EAT WAS A APPLE .......

    Part of the problem is that Argentinians are Socialists and have little regard for charitable contributions. They expect the Gov't to be the be all end all to all of life's problems. Even though history proves that wrong.
    Wake up Rgs
    Your delusional world is crashing into reality
    and its only going to get worse

    BEHIND THE TRAGEDY.
    It's obvious that the death of a child is always a tragedy, however, it was perfectly expectable that the cretins from the so called independent journalism, who have never cared about poor people, and who have always supported neoliberal governments, even dictatorships who took arg. to be one of the poorest countries in america when XXI century started, were going to use the death of this child, in order to invalid all the achivements that workers could get in all these years.
    Unfortunately some of our originary populations are still victim of violence, due to some powerful masters try to expeal them from their lands, in order to plant soya, i have said it in planty of opportunities in mercopress, i hope that the new familiy agriculture law helps to stop those cases. I know it doesn't have anything to do with the death of this child, but i think it's always necesary to remind it, because some of our people are suffering.
    Some of them are victim of institutional violence, because in some cases provincial politicians are complice with security forces who force our people to leave their lands.
    Nobody said that kirchnerism finished with poverty, indigence and unemployment, in fact, beyond all the achievements that we got, arg. is still a too unequal society, but i won't be too stupid to ignore that what those cretins are doing, with the death of that child, is no more than their characteristic despisable and hypocritical lectures that they often do, to say that almost nothing has improved in the country.

    “it was perfectly expectable that the cretins from the so called independent journalism, who have never cared about poor people”

    What basis do you have to make that statement? The media's role is not to care, or opine on events unless they are controlled and it becomes propaganda. Why don't you show us all here asslips kirchner's policies toward the indigenous people of Argentina. Because if you ask them, they will tell you your loving government discriminates against them. Asslips would just as fast assume finish killing them off as you did to the blacks.
