There is a gross mistake in
http://cryptome.org/2012/11/ar-bans-airspace-leaks.htm Your correspondent
says ``Due this the government banned the use of airspace to independent
news media helicopters,´´ This is not correct. Airspace over Buenos
Aires has been closed for one-engine civilian aircraft (planes as good as
choppers) since as long as I can remember, i.e. at least four decades. The
ban has nothing to do with preventing newscasts, but due to hazard prevention
rules long established by the aviation authority. The only news media having
a 2-engine chopper that could have been used that day (an MBB Bo-105 CBS-5
LV-COM, former BMI Luftrettung D-HGSK) is C5N news channel. They usually
fly only during daylight, and didn´t use it that evening. There are
some other mistakes in the info, but I won't enter into a byzantine argument
about the attempts from conservative groups to throw AR govt. Thanks.

Argentina Judge Bans Airspace and Leak Sites
Improvised drone "toy" bypassing argentine government airspace
On November 8th a mass protest against the Argentinean Government policies
( crime rates, inflation, censorship and political corruption) took place
in Buenos Aires City. Due this the government banned the use of airspace
to independent news media helicopters, to prevent aerial images gauge the
size of the protest. But that didn't stop an amateur drone to bypass aerial
restriction and take a Full HD video.
Ongoing Argentine Internet Censorship
First leakymails a website designed to obtain and publish relevant documents
exposing corruption of the political class and the powerful in argentina
including wiretap equipment information, eyeballing on some intelligence
services locations and more, then Cuevana a website which provides streaming
links to movies and series. Now blocking websites which provide information
on how to unlock(Bypass Trusted Platform Module DRM) argentine government
netbooks so you can install a clean Operating System without political propaganda
or according to some sources webcam spyware.
