The new Minister of Security of the city of Buenos Aires, Eugenio Burzacoassured that “there is a business with the picket line” and raised the need to create a law that regulates protests in the streets.
“The citizen is right to be fed up with the cuts and the pickets. We must move towards certain rational decisions that change this logic and that this change is sustainable over time,” the new Buenos Aires official who replaced Marcelo D’Alessandro after the Lago Escondido scandals and the leaked chats.
The reference is to the successive cuts that affect the streets in the face of the difficult economic situation. Burzaco, however, specifically focused on the demonstrations of the Piquetera Unit in front of the Ministry of Social Development and on Avenida 9 de Julio.
“The City does not have a law that regulates the right to demonstrate. Almost all the countries in the world and serious cities have been regulating this, so that your right to demonstrate does not affect the rights of others,” added the newly appointed security officer. porteña in dialogue with Diego Sehinkman in just one more lap (TN).
Burzaco then expanded: “A law would clearly improve the situation because you can put prison sentences for the organizers, you can put very large fines“, also giving the case of Mendoza as an example, where “the level of pickets and cuts fell significantly because they put more forceful, clear and harsh laws“.
He also stated that “there is a picket business” because those who coordinate the protests “force the people” to fill the streets. “I am not saying that you cannot protest, but you have to do it in an orderly manner. It is one thing to demonstrate, which is a right, and another thing is to affect the rights of others,” added the minister of Horacio Rodríguez Larreta.

What Burzaco said about prison problems
The Buenos Aires Minister of Security and Justice announced that by mid-2024 the construction of a new prison will be completed to close the Devoto prison, which will increase the capacity. However, he acknowledged that there are drawbacks to overcrowding.
“The federal penitentiary system stopped taking the number of prisoners that it had historically, it reduced significantly and that causes the system to collapse,” Burzaco considered.
He also referred to the problem of convicts, those defendants who must be monitored at home by court order. “The neighbor ends up harmed because he has 5,000 fewer policemen on the street to take care of him in the face of crimes or to work drug trafficking. Instead, they are fulfilling prison guard functions, ”he closed.
