How did everything come?
Almost a year ago the deputy of the South Parliament Milagro Sala is put in jail because the governor of the province of Jujuy, Gerardo Morales, does not like her, because she is indigenous, woman and has a certain political value in the parts of the population that do not sympathizes with the rather repressive ideas of the ultra-right.
Looking for evidence to be able to sue Milagro Sala, her husband, friends, friends, comrades, and some sympathizers were imprisioned - some were released, others not.
After 11 months, under pressure from several international institutions (among others the UN), the political regime finally decided to open the trial to Milagro Sala, and justice (as in any banana republic) fullfilling orders:

As the ecological damage of a camp may be minor, it is assumed that it is a question of persuading/condemning people based on their position and political conventions.
This is also significant for countries with weak ultra-right governments without political views and even fewer social visions.
As the oral trial was public, and the case has already attracted enough national and international attention, also national, provincial and local deputies wanted to attend the public trail, also by solidarity.
This the governor of the province of Jujuy, Gerardo Morales, did not like:
He ordered to beat and detain the national, provincial and local deputies.
And the armed forces had no hesitation in complying: there were injured public representatives, sympathizers and also people who just happened to be passing by the place of the courts on the return of having pulled the dog to piss in the trunks of trees of the park ...
