“I’m not leaving until I sell everything and with the heat that it is I hope to sell. But people don’t buy. Look, there is sadness. When Cristina was there, she sold everything. The talking beverage vendor is one of the many that are spread out in the vicinity of the Estadio Único Diego Maradona in the City of La Plata where this Thursday, the vice president Cristina Kirchner He once again headed an act full of liturgy, in which perhaps the context and deployment of the event was the juiciest of the day. The vendor came from Lomas de Zamora, from the heart of the southern suburbs, and he is going to stay all afternoon. He is standing at the intersection of 25th and 32nd avenues with two Styrofoam ice cream shops, he sells cans of beer for $500 pesos and water for $300. In front of him entered the entire column of The Campora. Almost no one buys from him. People, strictly speaking, want to enter the Stadium to listen and see the former president.

La Cámpora covered the entire head of the stadium that faces 25th avenue, right in front of the stage. There were two controls that were made by the organization itself. In a moment until the first access was approached Maria Luz Alonso, the administrative secretary of the Senate and CFK’s right hand in the Upper House. She is the referent of the organization in the province of The Pampa. He gave some orders to make people enter in the middle of shoving and a mass of militants who wanted to enter the stadium. Officials and special guests entered through another access, much further away than the militants.

The militancy filled the stands of the stadium, with the columns of La Cámpora in the center and also social organizations, such as Barrios de Pie, Nuevo Encuentro, Kolina, Frente Grande, the UOM, the different CTAs, Descamisados ​​and several others, who said they were present. to listen to the speech of Vice President Cristina Kirchner, 2022.

Once inside, light blue and white flags and a flag of the orgy. Holding a paravalanche is his boss, the son of the vice president and president of the Buenos Aires PJ, maximum kirchner. He is seconded by the mayor of Quilmes, Mayra Mendoza. The head of PAMI is also there, Luana Volnovich and the militancy, a lot of militancy. With more than an hour to go before the vice president comes on stage, the stadium is already full on the pitch and in all the stands set up for the occasion. A fence divided the field. Forward, the special guests: four thousand who entered with black and white bracelets. Behind, the different political organizations with weight in the mayors of the suburbs. The communal chiefs requested 20,000 locations. The unions, social organizations and the rest of the political parties that make up the government were located in the rest of the stands. front of all. The heat, the mass of people and the wait were not a good combo for some people who also decompensated and were assisted by paramedics.

Dozens of street vendors approached the facilities of the La Plata Stadium from the early hours of the afternoon, in the prelude to the speech of the vice president in La Plata this November 17, for the day of militancy (Aglaplata).

The deployment started days ago. Since Thursday the flags are tied in the stands. In addition to La Cámpora, there was everything: mayors of the PJ, Nuevo Encuentro, Kolina, Frente Grande, the UOM, the different CTAs, Descamisados ​​and several others. “We are satisfied, everything went well, there were no riots, the people are comfortable and they were able to listen to Cristina. This was what we wanted to do”, a person from La Cámpora, who was in charge of organizing the event, told him. Infobae.

The cry that resounded the most was -clearly- that of “Cristina president”, which was sung at various times in the afternoon. The vice president looked at him from her lectern on stage and said: “Everything to her measure and harmoniously.” She also used the silences to her advantage to let the crowd sing. “I missed you too,” she said when La Cámpora, which practically monopolized the songbook, came down from the rostrum “if they touch Cristina…”.

The previous one was long and also necessary if the slogan of the act was “The strength of hope”. The central objective was not for the former president to announce her candidacy, but rather to provide the militancy with expectation. “We needed something like this”, said two thirty-somethings as they walked towards the exit, as a first balance. From noon the buses began to arrive, mostly from the Buenos Aires suburbs, but there were also columns from the interior of the province of Buenos Aires. La Cámpora, for example, brought people from Olavarría, Junín or Exaltación de la Cruz; somewhat further from the core area.

A lot cumbia in charge of the DJ The Chinese Rabbit which had two high moments: when Jijiji by Patricio Rey and his Redonditos de Ricotas sounded and when the host Pedro Rosemblat asked to look at the header where La Cámpora was, who lowered a flag that covered the entire grandstand with the phrase “It was so different when you were there ”, while from the speakers sounded “If you had not gone”, from Marco Antonio Solis in cumbia version. A political conversion on a classic of romantic music. Then Cristina would talk about her last government.

The vice president, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, appeared on stage at 7:45 p.m. on Thursday, November 17, and spoke for an hour. “We can do that Argentina again because we already did it, but people have to decide if they want to go back to that Argentina,” she said.

Politics said present in its fullness. From obvious presences such as that of the Buenos Aires governor Axel Kicillof or the Minister of the Interior Peter’s Wado -the only two leaders who went up on stage to greet Cristina once the speech was over- even the leader of Somos Barrios de Pie, Daniel Menendezwhich had its moments of tension with Christianity when the vice president questioned the intervention of social organizations in the granting of social plans or the national deputies who knew how to defend Alberto Fernandez in the troubled history of the Frente de Todos, Eduardo Valdes either Leandro Santoro. All in. Even also the Renovation Front of Sergio Massawhose leadership arrived en bloc at the Stadium between Buenos Aires legislators, mayors and eventual candidates.

“People have to decide if they want to go back to being the Argentina that they once had,” Cristina Kirchner closed her speech, before she had highlighted the policies of the 12 years of her government and that of Nestor Kirchner. She greeted and, perhaps as a novelty, the act ended with a song by Babasónicos. “We are guilty of this scandalous love, which the very fire of passion fed…”. Little pieces of paper from a machine, waving flags and fireworks to embolden a hard core that will do what Cristina Kirchner defines, although for that – as she hinted – there is still a lack.
