The ruling powerís ministry in charge of Communication does not display any evidence of considering either the ongoing wave of protests or the reaction of the Malagasy journalistsí trade union. As a proof, the RADIO FEONíNY TOAMASINA (RFT) radio station broadcasts over the islandís eastern Toamasina harbor city and recently received a warning letter for closely cooperating with the FREE FM radio station which did declare war to the transitional regime. The aforesaid partnership seems to be intensely annoying the ruling power. [See]

One more Saturday spent in trenches in Antananarivo city. A demonstration organized by the Free FM radio station was disrupted by clashes on May 19th. The stationís main reporters are now on the run for being wanted by the police forces. The latest demonstration was aiming at jointly claiming freedom of speech over the Place of Democracy in Ambohijatovo. Due to its assessments broadcasted on a daily basis, and happening to be not to the ruling powerís liking, the Free FM radio station got into the High Authority of Transitionís sight. [See]

Another judicial trick has been engaged at Antananarivoís court. The SITRAM company is claiming the lot in Ankorondrano on which the FREE FM radio stationís facilities are located. The ultimate target: expelling the radio station. As a matter of fact, the concerned lot still happens to be disputed by the SITRAM company and the former owners, namely the Rahafimahaleo family, which sold the company to Edgar Razafindravahy, Antananarivo cityís special delegation head and the plaintiff currently in a politically motivated dispute with FREE FMís reporter Lalatiana Rakotondrazafy. The radio stationís leadership displayed its surprise caused by a strange coincidence: the judicial issue pops up shortly before May 13th, the stationís first birthday, on which a public demonstration is being planed [See]

What an unconventional world day of press freedom on May, 3rd ! A couple of FREE FM radio stationís reporters were held in custody at the state police station of Betongolo, then released in the afternoon of May, 3rd. Harry Rahajason, the ruling powerís communication minister, alias Rolly Mercia, had rather leave the capital city and attend an official event in the islandís southern city of Toliara. As a consequence to the FREE FM related case, the union of reporters actually leads the offensive in Antananarivo. [See]
