The controversy over the protests against the national government
September 18, 2012
Culture Secretary Jorge Coscia continued the controversy over statements by Kirchnerism officials about the protests of last Thursday. He said it was with “coup purposes”.
“We also know to win the street and we’re going to do it,” Coscia said at the opening of the photographic exhibition “Nestor for all”, in San Juan, as reported M24Digital.
Besides Coscia, congressmen Carlos Kunkel, Edgardo Depetri and governors José Luis Gioja (San Juan) and José Alperovich (Tucumán) also supported this line of discourse, but the most relevant was the Chief of Cabinet Juan Manuel Abal Medina holding that “the right wing before went to the barracks and today to the media.”
In this context, Buenos Aires Mayor Mauricio Macri said Abal Medina is a “rude”.
“How rude. Due to Abal Medina speech, soon there will be another mobilization of these, and we’ll be many more,” said Macri.
PRO leader added that “the reaction of the official is unforgivable” for his controversial statements as the protesters “did not occupy the lawn of the Plaza de Mayo to avoid soiling their shoes.”
For Macri, “there was in Argentina’s history as large spontaneous mobilization” and “people did not march against the President, was mobilized for its future.”
