On Thursday, President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner announced the creation of a non-governmental organization (Simefa) that will be tasked with measuring TV ratings nationwide "so we can all know what we watch and we like." The President said that "eleven public universities have already expressed their interest in taking part in it, along with twenty other organizations that have been invited to join the project." The President said this new federal system "will be transparent and both the public and private sectors will be capable of auditing it." In Paraguay, representatives of the Organization of American States (OAS) expressed their support for the Fernández administration's determination in the Malvinas sovereignty issue and its calls to resume negotiations with the United Kingdom. Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman said that this display of support "shows that the UK is opposed to engaging in dialogue, therefore it's opposed to peace." On Friday morning, Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich referred to the recent protests taking place outside steel factory Ternium Siderar and the decision by the teamsters' union to set up roadblocks outside the plant. Capitanich said that "setting up a blockade outside the factory is and extreme measure that's also illegal." The union is carrying protests in six plants now, the resulted of failed negotiations during the collective bargaining process. The company said "that the protests are illegal and illegitimate." Constitutional attorney Ricardo Gil Lavedra weighted in on the controversy surrounding Vice-President Amado Boudou, who will be testifying in court this Monday about his alleged involvement in the Ciccone case. Gil Lavedra said that "he has no doubt that Boudou is looking to delay the whole process for as long as he can," and that "his lawyers at some point want to have the judge leading the case (Ariel Lijo) removed from the case." Lawmaker Ivana Bianchi, from the Compromiso Federal caucus in the Lower House, has introduced a bill looking to ban children under the age of 12 from attending social protests, demonstrations or social or political marches. Bianchi says her goal is "not to stop or limit protests in any way," but to "protect a child's integrity." If the child's parents are caught taking a child to a protest, the bill stipulates that they will be fined and punished with community service.
