The Government confirms the "delivery in custody" of lands facing the sea to the militants of Juan Grabois


From the AABE they assure that the project was authorized on the property near Chapadmalal, but that the ownership remains in the hands of the State. The tension with the neighbors grows.

They say that they have 180 days to present the project, and that if they do not do so within that period, they should vacate the land.

The truth is that, after militants and producers referenced in the leader

Juan Grabois

settled in recent days in El Marquesado, a coveted 140-hectare property near Chapadmalal,

the national administration ratified that "a production project was authorized agroecology"

to a cooperative linked to the MTE on a "land that was completely abandoned.

"The ownership of the property will never cease to be of the national State. There is no project to build a neighborhood in the place.

No person is being given permanent residence. Environmental impact studies must be carried out or the project does not advance

 ", sources from the State Assets Administration Agency (AABE)

explained to

Clarín in relation to the lands in the municipality of General Pueyrredón, today in the hands of Guillermo Montenegro, of the PRO.

This Sunday, residents of the area blocked Route 11, between Miramar and Mar del Plata -a few kilometers away is the official summer residence of the Presidency-, while the militants were still inside the property.

The conflict is framed around the

"free provisional custody delivery agreement"

that the State ceded to the Third Time Civil Association, represented in the signing with the AABE by

Marcos Joel Santucho


The young man, for example, had already been awarded a home in 2021 in the El Martillo neighborhood, in Mar del Plata through the "Federal Program for Community Partner Integration." 

"The AABE is not behind this. We constantly receive requests, in some cases they are temporarily approved and in others not. Here there

were threats of intrusion and the delivery into custody was resolved

. Grabois has nothing to do with it and nothing is going to be built : it is an ecological enterprise in which only those who work will live," highlighted sources linked to the agency led by

Eduardo Albanese

, an architect who came to that place at the hands of the deputy chief of staff,

Juan Manuel Olmos


However, it was Grabois himself who ratified this weekend, through a video with which he responded to criticism from Montenegro and the PRO leadership, his interest in the project. 

"They are young cooperative workers, high-level technicians from the University of Mar del Plata and from CONICET developing an agroecological project. I congratulate and admire them. They are not Grabois people," stressed the social leader of the MTE.

Although he immediately finished off:

"They are people who have sometimes given me the absolute and undeserved privilege of accepting me as a reference

.  "

And he added: "There are colleagues who were with the Directorate of Access to Justice doing a mediation that went well."

Grabois refers in particular to

Gabriela Carpineti

, the national director of Promotion and Strengthening for Access to Justice of said portfolio, who this Saturday

defended the agreement in a Twitter thread

in which she remarked that they were "explaining the project to the neighbors to convey peace of mind."

Carpineti had first made headlines when he accompanied and demonstrated in favor of the seizure of the Etchevehere family's field in Entre Ríos by MTE militants,

a conflict that pitted Grabois against Mauricio Macri's former Minister of Agriculture


In the next few hours, the mayor of

Montenegro plans to present a series of criminal complaints


In these years, he had already made at least three presentations in court that, according to reports, led to various land evictions. 

Grabois, who during Macri's administration was in good harmony with a sector of the government, especially with

Mario Quintana

and part of the Ministry of Social Development, has moved in recent years under the umbrella of Kirchnerism.

He has a direct line with Cristina Kirchner, maintains an agreement with Eduardo "Wado" de Pedro and has been in conflict with the Casa Rosada for a long time


The conflict

also exposes the public and private dispute that Mayor Montenegro is dragging with the administration of Axel Kicillof

and with the national government: in Mar del Plata they assure that in these years neither of the two administrations collaborated with the municipality.

"They never lowered us a peso," they abounded.

There are no interlocutors.

The dialogue is broken.

Just some kind of management by the provincial Ministry of Security. 

The lands of Chapadmalal, which have increased in value in recent years, are the subject of

a bid between the municipality and the Province

The K reference in the area is

María Fernanda Raverta

, one of the main leaders of La Cámpora who lost the 2019 election and wants revenge.
