The photo that opens this note is one of the unity tests that Peronism wants to show outside. The Evita Movement, one of the social organizations that make up the Frente de Todos, but which until now was the political arm and territorial deployment of the President, met yesterday with the Vice President of the Nation, Cristina Fernandezand with one of the leaders of La Cámpora, maximum kirchnerto support the call for May 25 in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the assumption of Nestor Kirchner for president.
It’s the first time since Alberto Fernandez arrived at the Casa Rosada that La Cámpora will participate together with Evita, Somos Barrios de Pie and the Popular Front Darío Santillán, as well as the Great Homeland Frontwhich leads John Graboisin a massive act in which the only speaker will be the former president.
“We continue working to strengthen the unity of the national and popular fields”the organization in charge of Emilio Pérsico wrote on his Twitter account under the motto: “THE SUN OF 25 IS COMING UP”, like this, in print. In addition to the historical commemoration, the participation of all the organizations that make up the Union of Workers of the Popular Economy (UTEP) happens one month after the closing of the lists.
On Thursday the former president will once again demonstrate her centrality despite not aspiring to a possible third term, but knowing the power of his pen to endorse or cross out candidates in the national and provincial lists. In fact, his son is the president of Peronism in the province of Buenos Aires, seconded by the former mayor of La Matanza and deputy governor of Buenos Aires, Veronica Magarioand the leader of the Evita Movement and mayor of Moreno, Mariel Fernandez, who yesterday also participated in the meeting. The mayoress is a couple Esteban “Gringo” Castrothe general secretary of UTEP, leader of Evita and the Francisco Missionary Movement.

In the second photo, the center is occupied by deputy Kirchner, next to him is the provincial senator Patricia “Colo” Covered, leader of Evita, a place in Pérsico and pre-candidate for mayor of La Matanza. Her intention, if inmates are enabled within the Frente de Todos, is to seize the main electoral district of the province of Buenos Aires from one of the “Barones del Conurbano”, fernando espinoza, a task that will not be easy. The meeting was also attended by the national deputy of Evita, Leonardo Grosso and the province’s deputy ombudsman, Eduardo “Cholo” Ancona.
We are Barrios del Pie, whose national coordinator is the secretary of the Council of the Popular Economy and the Complementary Social Salary, Daniel Menendezand the Evita Movement formed their own political party: the Patria de los Comunes to compete for spaces of political power and dispute Peronist and opposition mayors.
That these social organizations have decided to participate in a key day in moments of electoral definitions does not mean that there is a consensus on a possible presidential candidate. Moreover, within those spaces, there is an intense open debate on the subject: “It’s all messed up”, recognized a prominent leader of Evita.
Under the motto #NestorNosUne, the different currents of the official coalition were adding to the call with a sense of historical remembrance and, at the same time, to try to iron out some rough edges and rapprochements. In fact, La Cámpora and La Patria de los Comunes will compete in some districts for different positions, ranging from municipal councilors to provincial and national councils.
as he was able to reconstruct infobaethere are social movements that, in addition to supporting a hypothetical candidacy of Eduardo “Wado” de Pedro, John Grabois or the Buenos Aires governor, Axel Kicillofwill carry their own slogans, even if they are drowned out by the chants they ask for “Cristina President”.
In dialogue with this medium, dina sanchezthe referent of the Popular Front Darío Santillán said that the call on Thursday: “It will be a massive march and You have to express very clearly the situation we are experiencing with respect to the Judiciary, which defines the elections in the provinces and acts as a party, only nobody elected them. On the 25th, we are going to say ‘democracy or judicial mafia’ again”.
Despite the differences with Kirchnerism and, above all, with the La Cámpora sector, the President wrote on his social network: “5/25/2003 changed history. The arrival of Néstor Kirchner began a path of moral reparation, social justice and human rights. On his 20th birthday, I call on everyone to honor him in Plaza de Mayo and listen to his life partner, @CFKArgentina ”and closes with the hashtag: “#NéstorNosUne”.
Menéndez, a candidate for mayor and an active militant for the re-election of Governor Kicillof, wrote on his Twitter account: “Together with the militancy of Tres de Febrero Futuro, we are already preparing to accompany @CFKArgentina in Plaza de Mayo this Thursday.”
More skeptical were the social networks of the Evita Movement, in which they also summoned to the Plaza de Mayo to listen to CFK’s speech: “20 years after the assumption of Néstor Kirchner ALL TO THE PLAZA”. A fact that in the Casa Rosada did not go unnoticed.
