La Cámpora inaugurated an office in Chascomús to “pay homage” to Hugo Chávez
In the Iporá neighborhood of the city of Chascomús, 126 kilometers from the city of Buenos Aires, militants from La Cámpora inaugurated the Hugo Chávez Neighborhood Headquarterswhich in addition to functioning as the basic unit of Kirchnerism also pays homage to the late autocrat Hugo Chávez.
The militants who promoted the creation of the space assure that they seek to concretize “the construction of the Great Homeland.” “It is an initiative that has been coming for a while. It has been difficult for us to achieve it because we did it with our own hands. Colleagues and residents of the neighborhood participated in the creation of this space from scratch”, reported one of the mentors of the tribute on the channel Venezuelan Television (VTV).
The Kirchnerista space, inaugurated on December 22 with the presence of the ambassador in Argentina of the Nicolás Maduro dictatorship, Stella Lugosearch “help families who cannot reach the State or the same Municipality”, as explained by Juan José Cano, nicknamed “Negro”, one of the references of the basic unit. And in this sense, he added: “We look for problems in the neighborhoods and we try to solve them.”
“In spaces like this we have meetings with neighbors and we exchange the possibility of reaching different homes and with different solutions. It is a place with open doors where we are militating and working with the people of the neighborhood all the time,” Cano specified during the report for the Venezuelan media.
Lastly, he maintained that the organization “has to do with the Great Homeland, with (Hugo) Chávez, Nestor (Kirchner), Cristina (Kirchner), Lula (da Silva). Always building and laying bricks to continue in this important outpost of the construction of the Great Homeland and to finish concretizing “.
The Buenos Aires deputy also participated in the opening ceremony Jose Ignacio “Cote” Rossi, who gave a brief speech and analyzed the importance of having this Kirchnerist headquarters in the city. “This fact has a double meaning, because it not only constitutes a new meeting point for the residents of the area, but it was built from the ground up by the militancy,” the official considered.
Cano, a former Chascomús councilor representing La Cámpora, was involved in a controversy in 2016 because at a farewell meal for the year put on a T-shirt with the face of former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Cano participated in a barbecue in the Iporá neighborhood, in the Buenos Aires town of Chascomús along with some of his militant colleagues, and in the photos of the event he can be seen wearing the shirt of the former Iranian president.
Ahmadinejad, a conservative Islamist and hate-monger against Israel and the United States, left power in 2013, and was succeeded by the more moderate Hassan Rouhani, who brokered the US-Iran deal that led to the Persian nation to disarm its nuclear project.
