how do you get in? none of the sidebar links work for me and it appears to require a username/password. the help implies that you get name/passwd via email or personally and doesn't say how to register online (i speak spanish, but may have missed something).

I'm sorry, but none of the links required validation when I used them. I did not have to register for anything. It looks like they use referrers to validate visitors, so visiting this link http://www.lacolifata.org/ will then redirect you using a valid login.

Many thanks. I have been searching for info on this radio program for years. For a related but different community of patient activists see the documentary Every Little Thing about the French mental health community called La Borde. It will be playing at the end of the month at the Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley.
