The Government is already beginning to retrace the path towards the elections. Less than three weeks after the closing of the lists, the Chief of Staff, Santiago Cafiero, planned an activity with young people in Casa Rosada, where in addition to targeting the opposition and the judges by assuring that they are “not” qualified to lead the country, sought to send an optimistic message to the future: “Argentina is not that shitty country that sometimes they try to portray us“, he said surrounded by young people, a sector that the ruling party tries to seduce in the face of the Legislatures.
Cafiero was in charge of closing the launch ceremony of the Multisectoral Youth Council, a space that is committed to incorporating this sector into the discussion of production and work. At the Bicentennial Museum, he took the opportunity to remember that in 2015 “Argentine society went backwards, it went backwards.”
“When it was decided that perhaps it was the time of businessmen, who could exhibit a commitment purely and exclusively with their company, without having a look of leadership or union militancy, it was not a model that worked in Argentina,” he said. in clear reference to Mauricio Macri.
Immediately, when he harangued young people and asked “to continue giving prestige to politics,” He launched a cryptic message against Justice: “Neither are judges qualified to lead our country.”
Then, the man of extreme confidence of the President, called to “think about how different issues are installed in the public debate.” And he started a harsh criticism of the media. “Since the pandemic began and I would say since our Government arrived, there are notes and notes from ‘successful’ Argentines who leave the country to work on things that they would not be willing to do here, as if that were a project or a destination. common for the country. The destination for our youth cannot be Ezeiza, but to be able to develop in a country that offers all social, material, economic and cultural conditions. And there are enormous examples of this, but what happens is that it does not sell much, “he questioned, in an activity promoted by the executive director of the National Youth Institute (INJUVE), Macarena Sánchez,
The event was attended by pro-government deputies such as Facundo Moyano, Juan Miguel Gómez Parodi (Province) and Juan Manuel Valdés (City), the Chief of Advisors to the Chief of Staff, Luciana Tito, the presidential advisor Julián Leunda; with young people linked to the business sector, such as the president of UIA Joven, Tomás Karagozian.
“Argentina is not that shitty country that sometimes they try to portray us”, Cafiero reflected, pointing to an attempt for “trampling the self-esteem” of the country. “We are one of the 12 countries in the world that make vaccines against Covid, one of the 15 countries that make satellites, one of the most developed in the knowledge economy. Argentines are not so bad …” , ironized the coordinating minister.
And he added: “We have a wonderful country that we have to defend together. It is not defended by a government, it cannot be defended by just one government, because if not everything that a government says, the opposition will always be on the other side saying no, that it is tendentious, with which the most important thing is to defend it together. Then there will be time for political and electoral discussion. “
Cafiero’s speech coincides with the discursive strategy drawn up by Vice President Cristina Kirchner since her public reappearance in mid-June, when she promised that Argentines they are “going to be happy again” and, days ago, when he gave young people like the cumbiero L-Gante as an example, all the rage in Argentina and in the world.
