Elections 2017 - whenever there are elections
Elections 2017 - whenever there are elections
After the bankruptcy of 2001 (caused by the same people who at the time returned to form the macrista regime) Argentina called the attention for numerous manifestations in the streets in which everybody expressed his doubts and concerns, manifestations with 5 people and demonstrations, with 1 million participants or more.
Argentina was characterized by a system of workers unionism, more advanced than in any other country, was characterized by highly educated and qualified people (due to free education for all) and by a well working social and health system.
There began a return oft public transport means (which were eliminated in favor of private companies by other governments), with prices accessible to all, like medium and long distance trains or inland flights with the national airline.
Well, all this was yesterday.
Now the Macrism regime opts for a different Argentina:
Who doesn't fit into the scheme, goes to prison, as political prisoner. Without trial, without judgment, without anything.
This happened to Milagro Sala, a woman, an Indian, a social leader and a deputy elected to Parlasur.
This was the case for several leders of worker unions, and this is what they want to raise for the former president, and current candidate for senator, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.
In order to destroy public and free education, at public school teachers a salary 40% lower than the poverty line is offered, at students in public universities (often living thousands of miles away from their village) are removed the scholarships and the subsidies.
So that neither the political prisoners nor the teachers or students are left alone, for the retirees was made a historical repair, which in the normal case brings them an increase of 10 Pesos (a little more than half a dollar) per month, but on the other hand, the free medicines for retirees has been already removed, medicines that are no longer available, not even paid.
Retirees with basic retirement lost 45% of purchasing power with the Macrism regime.
Women who received widowhood pensions once again were asked for all the documentation, if not threatening to take away their pensions.
Causing cases circling the/some media, such as asking this 96-year-old women whose husbands died in another province in the year 1974, they rowed behind and said this would be suspended. The expenses of documentation already delivered, is for the retired ... bad luck.
At disabled people their pensions were withdrew. Confronted with mass demonstrations, they again the rowed behind, but only with words: they said it was a political mistake and they were not going to do it, but however they did.
The huge wave of dismissals in order to flexibilize the labor market, already has caused more than half a million new dismissals, more than 3 million new poor were created with full success by the Macrism regime - the (almost) last were more than 600 unemployed by the PepsiCo company. It seems better not to sit down taking a can of Coke when negotiating with the CEO of PepsiCo, as the vice president did.
On the other hand, the 40 offshore accounts of the honorable president himself, evading taxes, offshore accounts of all other members of the government, bribery cases, such as those related to Odebrecht, and the fact that money goes to other side and doesn't benefit neither people nor country, are also things that are already well engraved in the brains of the people.
People also can't forget the increases in energy, water and garbage that came to be up to 6000% (six tousand), because they notice it, looking how slender their pockets are.
So, in view of all this, it is not surprising at all, that the number of social protests increases, every day there are demonstrations against the government and its taken measures.
Because the investments improving the economy promised for the past year so far didn't come (because the Argentinians are all vague, said the president, so even there is an enormous effort by him, no foreigner wants to invest ...), which would have been a pretty good argument for the 2017 elections, strategy was changed.
Now the Macrism regime wants to demonstrate the hard hand:
As if Argentina were in the middle of the civil War, armed forces are sent randomly to repress demonstrations, also beating women and children, something that seems the members of those armed forces like, because estimating that there will be less resistance, so one can feel himself more on the safe side ...
Armed forces are sent arbitrarily to raid workers unions headquarters, because regime thinks (rightly so) that there might be people working not agreeing with that what's going on.
With the elections date approaching, and the serious chances that voters will pay there the Macrism regime their failures, it is very likely that the number of assaults and attacks on democratic institutions, demonstrations and even candidates continues to rise.
From hard hand to dictatorship there's only one step.
