A 9 second long video of the Hurlingham mayor, Juan Zabaletait was enough for the La Cámpora group to launch a statement to demand “peace, tolerance and tranquility” and that the political debate take place in that Buenos Aires district “in harmony, listening to the other and seeking common solutions“.
La Cámpora denounced that in Hurlingham there are “dismissals”, interrogations and threats against its militants. Furthermore, they said that some are “harassed or persecuted in the street while carrying out solidarity or political activities”.
And it is that the Albertista Zabaleta, former Minister of Social Development of Alberto Fernández, is involved in a long-standing dispute with the Kirchner organization that forced him to leave his position in the national government to retake the reins of the municipality.

In a statement entitled “We are concerned Hurlingham“, the K group refers to the video recorded in the neighborhood of Parque Johnston in which you can see Zabaleta when he asks a 19-year-old militant what she is doing. “Militating?” he asks. “A little,” replied the young woman. “Let’s go at a STEP”, the mayor is heard saying before leaving.
La Cámpora published the brief video with an extensive statement in which it said: “We have seen dismissals for political affiliation, patrolmen interrogating militants, threats to social institutions and business premises for being associated with this or that leader, and even a councilor from the opposition to the that they broke the windows of the car at the door of the Deliberative Council”.

In this sense, they affirmed: “We have seen dismissals for political affiliation, patrolmen interrogating militants, threats to social institutions and commercial premises for relating to this or that leader, and even an opposition councilor whose car windows were broken at the door of the Deliberative Council”.
“We call on those who have greater institutional responsibilities to set an example and lower a change. It is a difficult time for the country. There are big issues to discuss this year: in Hurlingham we are concerned about insecurity, access to health, difficulties in reaching at the end of the month, the quality of life in our neighborhoods. We need to discuss these issues, generating a floor of coexistence and democratic respect,” they remarked from La Cámpora.
For this political organization, “The public debate must take place in harmony, listening to the other and seeking common solutions.” “On the eve of Easter, we call for the peace, tolerance and tranquility that have always characterized our beloved city of Hurlingham to prevail,” they concluded.
