The Alem Foundations (UCR); Think (PRO); Encuentro (Republican Peronism) and the Hannah Arendt Institute (Civic Coalition), present this Monday a manifesto with “Eight commitments for the future”, the pillars for building consensus that present an alternative to what the space currently in charge of the Government.
“We work so that there is work, to end poverty and social injustice, so that the priority is education, so that there is an efficient Justice and so that equality before the law is a reality. We work for the union of Argentines “, says the text.” To take advantage of the enormous possibilities that the world offers us. To take care of the environment. To be an innovative country that takes advantage of technological change. We work so that Argentines have, like fruit of his effort and his talent, the possibility of a better life ”, adds the opposition manifesto.
The eight pillars on which the foundations worked for the elaboration of the document are job; education; economic growth; Health; security; Justice; environment and foreign policy.
“The current government will leave us facing the tremendous challenge of overcoming the pandemic and the effects of its wrong policies: a huge number of dead Argentines, more than twenty thousand companies disappeared and thousands of lost jobs, an annual inflation of over 50%. that prevents the growth of Argentina, 45% of poverty and an unprecedented level of indigence ”, indicate the JxC foundations in the document.
“The lack of direction of its economic policy has left the country’s credit at the lowest level, isolates us from the world and deprives us of access to investment, credit and technology, essential to rediscover the path of work and growth ”, They explain.
On the other hand, the document emphasizes “a fundamental change in education to resolve the enormous disorders and loss of knowledge on the part of children and young people, as well as to recover school dropouts due to the prolonged and unjustified closure of schools. To do this, we must work on training, teacher training and digital transformation in the classroom “, they highlight.
“There was an advance in the power of the State to the detriment of the human rights of Argentines. This provoked the intervention of international human rights organizations, as in the case of the province of Formosa ”, they recalled from JxC.
“We propose to apply a model of economic growth and social justice at the service of all, in defense of freedom in our country and in the world, which is sustainable in its broadest sense. We have to avoid continuing to fall into recurring crises, in marches and countermarches ”, they added.
“Our idea of progress is not based on personalism or the situation, but on the conviction that under the respect of the norms, Argentina and its citizens can be much more than they are in this present,” they concluded.
