Former Vice President Amado Boudou, former Buenos Aires Vice Governor Gabriel Mariotto and former Ambassador Alicia Castro presented “Soberanxs”, a new political trend that seeks to debate foreign debt, foreign trade, poverty, care for the environment and food sovereignty within the coalition of the Front of All (FDT).

“Sovereigns do not come to break anything, they come to help heal the country with (President) Alberto Fernández and with (Vice President) Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, with the tradition of Peronism to have a free, just and sovereign homeland,” he announced Boudou from the stage he shared with Mariotto and Castro at the Mugica Cultural Center in the San Telmo neighborhood of Buenos Aires, on Sovereignty Day.

In that sense, the former Minister of Economy said that “we want it to be a natural fact to win the 2023 elections, that’s what we come to contribute to.”

“We propose something that we have said and heard from the President for a long time last Wednesday. We have to give discussions within the FdT, we do not have to hide them,” Boudou remarked.

The former vice president also referred to Argentina’s relationship with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and said that “this problem was not invented by Alberto Fernández, he inherited it from Mauricio Macri and his government.”

“It is not a new issue, after the government of (Juan Domingo) Perón, in the mid-50s, Argentina entered that body at the hands of the ‘shooting revolution’. Macri himself confessed that they gave him a loan to reach the end of the election. It was a loan for him to reach his second term. There is the illegitimacy of that credit, “he warned.

Boudou, on the other hand, also referred to “political prisoners” and considered that they are victims “of the judicial system”.

For his part, Mariotto said that “closing the crack means rebuilding Argentina” to discuss projects, plans, with all sectors “and said that” with social justice and the greatness of the nation we are going to discuss the program to get out of this situation”.

Meanwhile, Castro said that the coronavirus pandemic “lifted the veil of the deep violence of inequalities and showed that capitalism is not compatible with human survival” and argued that “it is time, then, to propose a new agenda of priorities “.

Jujuy social leader Milagro Sala was also present at the meeting through a video that she sent for the presentation of the space.

“The challenge they are taking is important. I understand that they are going to discuss the non-payment of the debt with the IMF, the situation of the political prisoners in the country. I wish the best of lucks. Homeland yes, colony no, “said Sala at the end of the video he recorded from his home, where he is deprived of his liberty.

The launch of Soberanxs was accompanied by a street party, where the presentation was followed through a screen that was placed outside the Mugica cultural center.

After the official presentation, the coordinators of each of the commissions that were formed gave an account of the main axes of the debates that will take place within each of them, according to spokespersons for the group.

All those present made the commitment to promote the debates in all the country’s provinces to “unite, organize and mobilize all those who fight, from different spaces, for an egalitarian country and for a better world,” as stated.
