Kirchnerism turned Remembrance Day into a launch of the 'Cristina 2023' clamor operation


La Cámpora mobilized the Plaza de Mayo, challenging the government of Alberto Fernández. 'If someone gets angry, let them get angry, we're going to the elections and society defines,' Máximo Kirchner pointed out to the President.

47 years after the start of the last military dictatorship,


completely took over the event for Remembrance Day and

used it politically, launching an operational outcry for the presidential candidacy of Cristina Kirchner

and seeking to weaken the figure of Alberto Fernández, the head of state, who traveled to the Dominican Republic for the Ibero-American Summit.

From early on, La Cámpora summoned the militancy at the corner of the former ESMA, in Núñez.

And from there he mobilized towards Plaza de Mayo, where the central act was held, with the presence of the Grandmothers and Mothers of Plaza de Mayo and different left-wing organizations.

The national deputy

Máximo Kirchner led the caravan

together with wayward ministers of the government of Alberto Fernández, such as Eduardo de Pedro, the Buenos Aires governor Axel Kicillof, the mayor of Quilmes Mayra Mendoza, the outgoing general secretary of La Cámpora Andrés Larroque and his successor, Lucía Campora.

It was during this tour that Máximo left the most forceful phrase of the day, in a direct message towards the President's attempt to be re-elected, which he mixed with criticism of his administration.

"Those of us who were telling the government what the problems were, the agreement with the IMF, we have to know how to stick our heels in the ground and say no. The agreement was bad and everyone knows this. Argentina has a maturity curve ahead that overwhelms.

And if someone gets angry, let them get angry, we are going to elections and society defines

, "he said.

The statement was made a few hours after


redoubled the attack against Fernández by stating that "

the re-election of the President is behind us, there are no sectors that raise it


A more balanced tone to the intern sought to give "Wado" by Pedro.

"We have to find a point of consensus to be able to order," said the Interior Minister.

With the act accomplished, and with the people leaving the Plaza, it was

Cristina Kirchner who expressed herself through social networks


The vice president avoided giving a proselytizing meaning to her tweet, but she again charged against Justice, in her daily confrontation after being sentenced to six years in prison in the Highway case.

"Democracy is in danger when economic and power concentration deepens social inequalities more and more. Today, in the streets and squares, hundreds of thousands march for Memory, Truth and Justice to defend Democracy and say Never Again to the Judicial Corporation" , he wrote, refloating his statements on Tuesday, in an act with the Puebla Group at the CCK.

The Plaza de Mayo showed the usual turnout on March 24, with a large presence of Grandmothers and Mothers, but also with leftist militants making themselves present.

However, it was La Cámpora that finished taking over the march, entering from Diagonal Norte, with undisguisable posters promoting "CFK 2023" and giant silhouettes with the image of the former president that brought the traditional ultra K color to the celebration.

On the side of the Grandmothers, criticism arose again towards Mauricio Macri, the former president of the Nation.

Estela de Carlotto, its president, questioned Macri's statements in which he spoke of the "human rights gig."

"That is old, I would have to find a more interesting vocabulary. This man would have to go to university because he never was. Argentines are increasingly interested in politics and it is to laugh at a man who is worthless," said De Carlotto in an interview with C5N.

There was room for more inmates

from the Frente de Todos also in 24M.

The picketer Luis D'Elía crossed Máximo Kirchner for a photo of him with Juan Grabois, in the middle of a caravan towards the Plaza de Mayo.

"Máximo embraced with Juan Grabois, the friend and partner of Pepín Rodríguez Simón. This photo is an insult to all the Kirchnerist political prisoners victims of the lawfare, to whom Máximo always turned his back on us. I neither forget nor forgive!" he tweeted. D'Elia.
