MADRID, 7 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The president of Argentina, Alberto Fernández, made a call this Tuesday to the citizens of the country to take care of the institutions and protect democracy "from all those who despise it."
This was stated during a convention of the Argentine Chamber of Construction (CAMARCO) in which he stressed that "it is not them or us. We are all, the people of the Argentine nation."
"The assassination attempt on Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, in addition to its human dimension, is of enormous political and institutional gravity. The Argentine people were shocked and took to the streets to express their rejection. There was not a single act of violence There was not a single broken window," the head of state stressed, according to a statement from the Casa Rosada.
The president thanked the head of CAMARCO, Gustavo Weiss, and the president of the Argentine Industrial Union, Daniel Funes de Rioja, for having participated in the meeting with members of civil society that he convened at the Casa Rosada last Friday to repudiate this event "of such institutional gravity".
For this reason, he assured that "it is a sign of political maturity to see Argentine businessmen committed to institutionality, repudiating violence and voices that harm the much-needed national unity."
"We need to be able to grow in peace and together. We will not achieve these purposes if we do not assume once and for all the obligation that falls to us to guarantee democratic coexistence," Fernández added during the event.
"If that is our objective, let us not give more space to the worshipers of hate, to those who use the freedom of opinion to defame and discourage the people, to those who elevate themselves to democracy only to discredit it with speeches that do not leave to repudiate it, to those who sow violence with the sole purpose of confronting us", he added.
The president of Argentina has made a call to build with an impact on reality "so that the changes that Argentina has been demanding for a long time begin to be generated."
