After Cristina Kirchner’s speech in Río Negro, in which she left messages for the inmate, criticism of the Government’s own economic policy and a new offensive against Justice, the main leaders of Kirchnerism headed a militant act this afternoon in Avellaneda to reinforce the “operative clamor” that drives the candidacy of the Vice President. An increase in pressure is also expected for Alberto Fernández to abandon his aspirations to run for re-election.
It is also about the virtual launch of “La Patria es el Otro”, the new space of Andrés “Cuervo” Larroque, one of the main references of La Cámpora that aims to expand the ultra K organization. Cristina Kirchner does not participate in the event, who He was the protagonist of the political week with two appearances -one of them surprising in the Senate- and due to the fact that the Justice informed the foundations of the sentence against him in the Road case.

The meeting takes place in the territory of Jorge Ferraresi, one of the mayors most loyal to the Vice President, and dozens of organizations that sought to mobilize 20,000 militants participated, together with national and provincial officials, legislators, union leaders and Buenos Aires mayors.

The slogan used was the historic Peronist motto “Fight and Come Back”, closely related to the chosen date: this March 11 marks the 50th anniversary of the triumph that brought Héctor Cámpora to the presidency and that opened the door to the return of Juan Perón to Argentina after 18 years of proscription. Kirchnerism seeks to force a parallelism between the figures of Perón and the Vice President.
Starting at 4:00 p.m., a plenary session of commissions will be held that will prepare a final document in support of Cristina Kirchner. The text will be loaded with denunciations of alleged judicial and media “persecution” against the former president, a call to break with what Kirchnerism calls “proscription” and the warning that the true and irreplaceable leader of the Frente de Todos is Cristina Kirchner.

The closure of the event, after 6:30 p.m., will be in charge of the governor of Buenos Aires, Axel Kicillof, who will seek re-election in the next elections, and the deputy Máximo Kirchner, leader of La Cámpora and president of the Buenos Aires PJ. The words of the Minister of the Interior, Eduardo “Wado” De Pedro, whom a good part of the hard-line Kirchnerism promotes as a candidate for President in the event that Cristina Kirchner does not compete, are not ruled out either.
The act will mean another demonstration of power that is more oriented towards the inside of the ruling coalition than towards the outside, at a time when officials close to Alberto Fernández take it upon themselves almost daily to support the electoral ambitions of the President, despite pressure from the leadership.
