Buenos Aires, March 23 (RHC)-- The Vice President of Argentina, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, affirmed that the attacks and persecutions against her by the "judicial party" are due to the fact that progressive sectors seek the equality of societies and fight for social justice.
"They do not persecute us because we are populists, or from the left, from the right, or from below or from above," said the Argentinean leader during her participation in the meeting called "Popular Will and Democracy - From the Military Party to the Judicial Party," organized by the Puebla Group in Buenos Aires.
"They persecute us because we equalize societies, for social justice, for the rights of workers to actively participate in the gross product of what they produce," added Fernandez de Kirchner, who was president of Argentina from 2007 to 2015, and who has a court ruling that prohibits her from aspiring to a new electoral candidacy.
She stated that "they will never forgive us for the reconstruction of the economy and what we were able to build in terms of human rights (...) They will never forgive us." She maintained that "what the military party was to the popular governments of the 20th century, the lawfare (judicial persecution) is to the national, popular and democratic governments. Exactly the same".
In this sense, the official denounced that lawfare "cannot be explained without the media. The sentence is written in the media and then a prosecutor or a judge subscribes the accusation or subscribes the sentence."
