FPV Proposal: $ 100 bill with Hipólito Yrigoyen’s face
September 20, 2011
FPV’s Deputies, proposes to issue a $ 100 bill with the face of Hipólito Yrigoyen in replacement of Julio Roca.
As part of the Bicentennial, the proposal also provides for the inclusion of a representative picture for the anniversary of the “Grito de Alcorta” the agrarian revolt that occurred in Santa Fe in 1912. The huega originated among small and medium ruralists, mostly immigrant tenants. They were forced to accept the ominous conditions imposed by landlords as rents contracts priceless, purchases of tools and supplies to whom the landowner shall command and responsibility more settler by a poor harvest. It reached a point where, even though the settler work from sunrise to sunset and good the harvest at the end of it he had no or basic necessities for survival.
In this context, farmers, despite the fear of repression and distrust, with the support of the dockers and anarchists managed to organize and fighters staged the big protest. On 25 June after a highly participatory meeting determined the indefinite strike.Although the protest did not modify the agrarian structure based on the power of the landowners, could get some reindivicaciones and caused the emergence of organizations of settlers in various parts of the country in the newly emerged nucleated Agrarian Federation. In the first congress of this organization was hoisted the famous principle of the Zapatista revolution in Mexico: the land must be those who work.
Reindivicando this historical fact deputies Héctor Recalde, Diana Conti, Carlos Kunkel, Adriana Puiggrós, Remo Carlotto, Octavio Arguello, Carlos Moreno, Adela Segarra, Gustavo Dutto, Luis Cigogne, Juliana Di Tullio, Juan Carlos Lorges, Maria Teresa Garcia and Graciela Giannettasio of Saiegh signed the bill, which provides for the regulation of the ticket by the Central Bank (BCRA). Turn on the presentation addressed to Eduardo Fellner, 1912, was highlighted as an important year not only for the Grito de Alcorta that “established the beginning of the end of the abuse and exploitation of the tenants in our country” but also by the sanction of Saenz Peña’s law instituting the secret universal and compulsory ballot.
The inclusion of the former president on the ticket justify this sense, since Yrigoyen participated in the reform for more inclusive and democratic vote. It should be noted that Argentina was one of the few countries in the early twentieth century, achieved a big institutional democratic change.
“This need to recognize important events for our country, and this year celebrates its centennial, we ask our peers to vote in favor for this bill,” the document.
