The co-secretary general of the CGT, Carlos Acuña, affirmed this Friday that the Supreme Court must “put on long pants” and criticized the Judiciary”, considering that he should “do a self-criticism” because “it is also part of the problem”.
“The Court has to put on the long pants and see what is right and what is wrong. Justice is also part of the problem in Argentina, you have to do a self-criticism,” Acuña said in dialogue with El Destape Radio.
The leader of the union that brings together service station workers remarked that “The CGT never participated in any meeting in which a mobilization was proposed”, in relation to the call for the march in front of the Supreme Court of Justice on February 1.
“Until today it is not going to leave because we do not know the objective” of that concentration, Acuña said about the position of the CGT in relation to that call, to which the CTA led by Hugo Yasky will adhere.
Regarding the complaint about a judicial table from Buenos Aires that became known through the dissemination of videos in which the former Minister of Labor of María Eugenia Vidal, Marcelo Villegas, expressed his desire to have “a Gestapo” to act against the unions, Acuña considered that the former governor “cannot ignore this issue”.
“The meeting was at the Banco Provincia, so let’s not fuck around. I did not imagine such a structure of a government to persecute union leaders,” he emphasized.
