    What an announcement...!
    What's about five times more than what the FIG(leaf) donated to Chile earlier this month...
    Seemingly them Kelpers are putting most of their Cuckoo's eggs in the Uruguayan basket ...

    In these Covid19 times..., everything is calculated in “parts per million”... turnipy Swede...
    Ergo Uruguay has got five times more monies per inhabitant than Shile...

    Well, of course Chile has a much greater population than Uruguay. But these donations are given to NGO:s and not to the states. And £ 5.000 is a rather big sum coming from such a small population if you count per capita. Perhaps they want to show that they appreciate those countries, in contrast to their closest neighbour. It is a symbolic gesture.

    Covid 19 is a killer, no matter where you come from or what ethnicity you are, and should never be used as a political or nationalistic tool,

    I donate every year to UNICEF, an annual donation and nobody knows about it.
    I never donate to CEPRODIH because I don't know who they are.

    One could even be tempted to Think that them Kelpers pulled this cheap propaganda stunt by taking them £5,000 donations for Chile and Uruguay out of that Engrish Standard Chartered Bank £12,000 donation for them Kelpers..., keeping the £2,000 change...

    Stingy buggers..., them Kelpers...

    Maybe you should THINK a little harder. Its 5000 on top of whatever Standard Chartered paid.

    I have no doubt that it is cheap advertising.

    for me it is very interesting to read opinions of those who live on the islands as islander1.
    and funny to read the opinions of those who live so so far away.
    but I don't understand why islanders pay mercopress to edit irrelevant notes.

    Paddy just above...

    - Many years ago I was contacted by a honourable gentleman that kindly ask me to abstain in the future of publishing (again.., in here) the evidence 'bout them Kelpers paying Mercopress to edit irrelevant notes..., because it was hurting his business...
    As he asked politely..., i did agree and continue to this day honouring my word...


    If them ENGRISH PIRATES themselves..., freely choose to publicly declare MERCOPRESS to be one of their very own...: ***“FALKLAND ISLANDS NEWS AGENCIES”***..., it ain't me fault..., ain't it...? Huhhhhhhh...? ...:
    - Penguin News...: (
    The Falkland Islands weekly independent newspaper published every Friday

    - South Atlantic Remote Territories Media Association (SARTMA)...: (
    News from the British Territories in the South Atlantic (Falkland Islands, South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands, St Helena, Ascension Island and Tristan da Cunha)

    - Falkland Islands Radio Service (FIRS)...: (
    To listen to live radio broadcasts from the Falkland Islands

    - M E R C O P R E S S /South Atlantic News Agency: (en.M E R C O P R E S S .com)
    Covering the latest news in the Falkland and other South Atlantic Islands, Antarctica, Mercosur and other Latin American countries...

    ............ I Think it's time to stfu you Paddy!

    News from Latin America and Mercosur -- Mercopress
    how many people live in mercosur?
    How many people live in Latin America?
    How many people live in malvinas/falklands?
    the islanders are not part of mercosur and they think that they are not Latin Americans.
    go to
    and you will always see unimportant notes about Falklands / Malvinas
    giving mercopress a lot of importance.
    someone pays for this advertising
    and I really like to see what the real islanders think.
    and I am more amused by those who say from very far away, those who miss the old empire that does not exist.

    The Idiot Think (who thinks he's clever and erudite but isn't)

    Let me quote what you wrote:-

    'Covering the latest news in the Falkland and other South Atlantic Islands, Antarctica, Mercosur and other Latin American countries...'

    So 'covering the news - isn't that what news agencies are for?

    but no evidence whatsoever that the Falkland Islanders actually PAY Mercopress for editing.

    So as per usual shitfer you are unable to prove anything - no surprise there then just what we would expect from you Russian trolls - what no proof that you're a Russian troll - why no I haven't but then you clearly don't require proof (see above)

    Sans culotte

    You plonker - what has population got to do with the price of cheese?

    And you really like to see what the islanders think - bollocks you do all you're interested in is occupying their homes and stealing their assets.

    Practically every independent news organisation relies on advertising.

    Precisely which empire do I miss - certainly not the British Empire but then the only empire in the southern cone is the Argentine Empire - you know the one that was created by murdering the indigenous peoples and is still trying to expand at other people's expense.

    Still waiting for proof that the Falkland Islanders PAY Mercopress for editing - and guess what - just like your Russian troll pal you can't provide it - twat!!!

    i have been called a number of things and given a number of geographical procedencest during me years as a humble Patagonian commentator here at MercoPress..., the FALKLAND ISLANDS NEWS AGENCY...

    Of the top of my head..., I recall being labeled as a “Bulgarian troll”..., an “Indian troll”..., a “Kelper called Alex”..., a Kelper with no name..., a “Fk*cking nazi German”..., a “Fk*cking Jew”..., a “Fk*cking Dago”... etc..., etc..., etc...
    “Russian troll” is a first..., I Think...
    Ain't that baaad...:-)

    As long as nobody ever repeat the insult that really did hurt me...!
    A simpleton poster once..., a lad called “Briton”..., hit me real hard when he..., of all bad things in this Universe..., accused me of being an............. Engrishman...!

    Still shiwering.... :-(

    Stink, Sans culotte.

    We don’t have to pay them, they do it for free.

    It is so ingrained in them “cipayos”, they just can’t help it!

    What can I say, it’s not paranoia, you are right and the world does hate you.

    It’s why most of you are still poor.
