Political, social, trade union and human rights organizations mobilized in downtown Buenos Aires, even Laval Square and the courts, to demand from the Supreme Court of Justice the freedom of social reference and the leader of the Tupac Amaro group, Milagro Sala, five years after his arrest in Gogo. The slogan “The Court is a dumping ground for democracy” was one of the protest slogans, and piles of garbage bags were thrown in front of the judiciary headquarters.
Focus began at noon on Avenida 9 de Julio, which served as a meeting point for protesters who came from various access routes. After 1:30 p.m., with Tupac Amaru and Lacampura at the head of the pillars that extended towards Istiklal Street, they began walking towards the Courthouse, where the offices of the Supreme Court members were located.
“Specifically, the court must resolve the opening of files and appeals in the complaint that we submit,” explained Tupac Amaru’s national coordinator, Alejandro Garfagnini, about the reason for addressing the highest court. “The court has to decide the nullity of the cases,” he added.
Among the flags and banners are the names and colors of the Milagro Sala Front, Popular Militancy, CNCT, Patria Justa, Corriente Peronista 13 de abril, CTD Aníbal Verón, Frente Barrial de la CTA, MTL, Movimiento Mayo, Peronismo de Base Envar Kadri, Transverse Front, Espacio Puebla , Among others. Participants from the trade union field were the Leather Tanners Syndicate, ATE Capital, the Citrago Judicial Workers Union, and the Metro Workers Union.
This is the time for a deep judicial reform, for sure. National Representative Vanessa Seeley said during the rally, “I think that this should start with the head of state authority. Representative Walter Correa called on the executive and legislative authorities to” press and struggle to amend the status of judicial property that conflicts with the freedoms and interests of the people. “Rep. Paula Pinaka spoke of” a court Alia is not addicted to the Macri government, but on economic power. ”She emphasized that the“ political responsibility ”of the Todos Front project is to“ correct the atrocities committed ”by the judiciary in times of macrism.
At the foot of the court stairs, with the police in custody, a group of undisciplined protesters placed on the protective fences a huge flag of the Milagro Sala Front with the face of founder Tupac Amaru, the myth of “5 years imprisonment” and the dominant idea specially designed for this law: “The Supreme Court is a dumping ground for democracy.” At that point, some protesters marched to the fences and threw trash bags full of rubbish on the asphalt of the street. Garbage piled up from the corner of Laval to the middle of the building.
