Government plans to close ranks and bet on unity to silence the internal shorts have their flats. While the Front of All seeks to win oxygen with the massive arrival of vaccines and to postpone the internal discussions, the Evita Movement, the most important social organization within the ruling party, once again demanded that the workers of the soup kitchens be vaccinated, a decision that has already been carried out in the City.
The Evita Movement, the most important social organization within the ruling party -with positions in a dozen ministries– issued a very hard statement to demand the vaccination of the militants who attend the soup kitchens of the whole country and that, in its vast majority, are women. “In recent weeks we have already lost more than 60 colleagues from our community kitchens victims of Covid-19. We need vaccines for those who since the beginning of the pandemic have been on the front lines working to feed their people, ”says the text released on social networks by the organization led by the Secretary of Social Economy for Social Development, Persian Emile, and the Secretary for Parliamentary Relations of the Head of Cabinet, Fernando “Chino” Navarro.
We are essential. The poster and communiqué of the Evita Movement, ally of the President.
The Evita had marked its dissent at the beginning of May with the increase of the Alimentar Card, the main program of social containment of the Portfolio led by Daniel Arroyo. “it’s bread for today and hungry for tomorrow”, Persico had maintained, a day after President Alberto Fernández announced the expansion of the plan within the framework of the so-called Hunger Table. Juan Grabois, of the MTE and other referents of the Union of Workers of the Popular Economy (UTEP) had also marked their differences.
Gildo Onorato, social secretary of Evita and union of the UTEP, not only demanded for the vaccination of the workers of the canteens, but also showed that the head of the Buenos Aires government was the first to include that group within the vaccination plan. “Alberto Fernández, Carla Vizzotti; I wonder, how many deaths does it take for OUR GOVERNMENT to define as strategic personnel the companions of picnic and dining rooms and to be vaccinated? I remind you that the opponent Horacio Rodríguez Larreta has already defined it. What a paradox”, Onorato asked the President and the Minister of Health on Twitter.
The reaction of the leader of Evita does not represent an act of individual rebellion. Within the organization they tend to define it exaggeratedly as a “Soviet cadre” to underline its organic character.
Consulted by Clarion, from the Ministry of Health they warned that as agreed by the Federal Health Council -which are made up of Vizzotti and the ministers of the 24 jurisdictions- it was defined that once the 15 million Argentines that make up the risk groups established in the Strategic Vaccination Plan It will be incorporated into the age groups without risk, according to the risk of exposure and the occupational condition, among other conditions.
They emphasize that the definition of the new priorities – in agreement with the National Immunization Commission – will be left to each jurisdiction. They insist that the National Health Portfolio exercises the leadership of the vaccination plan, but that each province is responsible for defining the priority population. The poster that Evita distributed with some of the most recent dead is a statement in itself. There you can see militants from the main urban centers of the country, in addition to CABA and Córdoba, which are administered by Peronist governors, such as Between Ríos, Santa Fe and Province.
Evita’s new claim clashes with the will of the main allies of the Frente de Todos to show unity and postpone until after the election the definitions that bring more tension between the allies; a strategy that forced the Minister of Economy Martin Guzman to build bridges with La Cámpora and with the Buenos Aires governor Axel Kicillof, one of his biggest critics within the Government, after the open-air discussion about the rates.
