“From The homeland of the commons We want to discuss the national model and strengthen the Frente de Todos with participation. There is a limit to the patch policy”. With the sentence, blunt and which implicitly carries a strong criticism of the current government of Alberto Fernandezsocial and official leader Daniel Mendez reminded him GlobeLiveMedia that today at 5 p.m. the launch of the political party will take place.
The event will take place at the Nueva España stadium, located at Avenida Santiago de Compostela 387 in the city of Buenos Aires, where pro-government social movements, including Evita and Somos Barrios de Pie, will hold the national release of his political party.

“Now that the power play of democracy representing it comes undonenow that the right has decided to become extreme again, as it corresponds, there needs to be a reaction to reaction: a good progressive conscience will not be enough to face the challenges posed to us by a now total crisis”, brandishes the largest young political party local man whose goal is to begin to limit the power of the “barons of the suburbs”, who for decades ruled the offices of the most important mayors of the province of Buenos Aires.
This objective will not be easy because they also face, from Kirchnerisme to La Cámpora, the political group led, among others, by the national deputy Maxim Kirchner; the nation’s interior minister Edward “Wado” by Peterand its partner from Buenos Aires Community Development, Andres “Cuervo” Larroque.
De Pedro is being promoted by Kirchnerisme as the ruling party’s presidential candidate, although Alberto Fernández’s manager has yet to announce whether or not he will play for Frente de Todos.
who did it is Juan Graboisleader of the Movement of Excluded Workers (MTE) and reference of the Frente Patria Grande, which already has three national deputies belonging to the Frente de Todos bloc in the Lower House.
The MTE, the Evita Movement and Somos Barrios de Pie, together with the Classist and Combative Current and the Darío Santillán Popular Front, among other organizations, constitute the powerful Trade Union of Workers of the Popular Economy.
Although they campaign together for very similar social demands, La Patria de los Comunes does not support Grabois’ candidacy, and accuses him of having “hastened” to jump into the electoral arena before trying to clear an internal consensus in search of a single candidate. , who could be Daniel Scioli, Argentina’s ambassador to Brazil if the first president lowers his intentions to get re-elected.
The party organization, which today hopes to bring together some 40,000 people at the Club Español stadium, still does not have the internal consensus to support a pre-candidate. That’s why when GlobeLiveMedia Asked Pérsico about proper names, he replied: “We are waiting for a gaucho come send and say ‘let’s see these blacks following me’, and we will line up behind him if he joins our proposals”.
Among the proposals they promote, the following stand out: “more and better labor rights, new and expanded”; “productive credit”; “social parity”; “agrarian reform”; “food sovereignty” and “production above financial capitalism”.
This program is the one which will be launched today in the afternoon and which will be on the lips of Persian, Menendez, Gildo Onorato and other social references that make up the new political space.
“This party comes to express the leading role that workers must have in politics”, explained Persico and clarified: “Democracy is perfect if all social sectors express themselves in the State and build the common good from there. Our popular movements need an explicit political reference that defend us and express”.
For his part, Menéndez declared to this media: “The homeland of the commons has the medium-term objective of expressing to the workers, give them importance and voice to those who today have no political representation. To build a country project on which is based a new idea of the fatherland which has the popular sectors as protagonists and which is the channel where they can express themselves”.
The official also warned that “the objective of 2023 is to strengthen the Frente de Todos and build people’s victory. The construction of our space is for a flow of activists to join in participating enthusiastically and actively with new ideas and challenges and with all the strength of the unity of the Frente de Todos that leads us to victory and to be able to build within it a current that expresses the political perspective of popular movements. contribute to birth of a Peronism for the 21st centurywhich enhances the new basement of the Patria de los Comunes, building a popular development with social justice for the national group”.
Within the framework of the political scheme of strengthening power and gaining territorial space, Menéndez confirms that: “The objective of this year is also linked to the widening of the base of support of the Frente de Todos in the cities and territories, where we express the importance of the popular sectors in projects that enrich and contribute”. For this reason, the national official maintained that “we are going to participate in the internal Front de Tous with our candidates, challenging the municipalities, like Patricia Covered in La Matanza; Natalia Souto to Vicente López; Leo Grosso in Saint-Martin; Augustin Balladares in Lanus; or myself in Tres de Febrero”.
Last Tuesday, during the presentation of La Patria de los Comunes in Quilmes, Honored Guildleader of the Evita movement, said: “The Patria de los Comunes is a partisan tool for give voice to popular sectors; to give visibility to the struggles of the popular economy; to feminism; environmental issues; new ways of producing in Argentina; taking into account that it is necessary and imperative that we manage to help economic growth from the bottom up, from the periphery to the center”.
The union secretary of UTEP also understands that the political party he represents “is a tool for those who have been invisible, violatedthat they haven’t had a voice and that we don’t have full representation in this democratic system and we find it”.
Persico founds the formation of the political space that integrates the government alliance to strengthen “an imperfect democracy” and underlines: “We have been listened to by the politicians, but they don’t see us. They don’t understand what we are basically.” And he criticized the head of state who appointed him to the secretariat of the social economy, recalling that: “We did not have the Ministry of Popular Economy», a promise that Alberto Fernández would have made in person but which ultimately did not materialize.
The president of La Patria de los Comunes criticizes the government administration of which he has been a part since December 10, 2019.I am not satisfied with the policies of the Ministry of Social Development. We have failed to inscribe the new social conflict in the state,” he acknowledged.
Moreover, he pointed out that they do not want “social plans, we want the recognition of the workers. The social plan is not worthy. I have the dream of the country without social plans, with decent jobs, ”he ventured into the presentation of La Patria de los Comunes last February from the improvised stage of Torquato Tasso, in the district of San Telmo in Buenos Areas.
Menéndez, one of the speakers today at the Deportivo Español stadium, recalled that: “In 2003 we accompanied Néstor (Kirchner) and Cristina (Fernández) during the 12 years of expansion of rights and in this process, we have been the protagonists of the fights for our people. to build a national development project with social justice and then we resisted for four macrismo and that we managed to overcome with the Frente de Todos”.
The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Social Development assured that throughout these years: “We have built the idea of the popular economy that supports us today and that emerged by linking our luck with those who closed the factory, or directly We have never seen open to all and it was not possible to find full employment with a registered job”. This, he affirms, will be one of the objectives of the political party which he presides with Pérsico and which will have its massive presentation at the national level this afternoon.
