And added that “Never, no militant or supporter of our political space has gone to the home of any macrista leader to insult them. Neither to the house of Macri, nor to that of Rodríguez Larreta, nor to that of Bullrich or Vidal”.
“They are very, very violent…and when they are less, the Rodríguez Larreta police join the aggression against me. They never were and will never be democratic,” he added to question the head of the Buenos Aires government, who hours later responded on Twitter in a message in which he demanded “not generate violence” and “take care of social peace”.

The events occurred tonight in the vicinity of the apartment where the Vice President of the Nation lives, where opposition groups that repudiated her and militants from the ruling party that support her attended, on the day that the prosecution requested that she be sentenced to 12 years and that they disqualify her for life from holding public office, in the framework of the trial for public works in Santa Cruz.
The clashes with the City Police occurred between 8:15 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., when the operation tried to displace the demonstrators who were in front of the Vice President’s house, who remained in the place, before which the troops pushed with the shields, between cane blows and pepper spray launched in the face of the Kirchnerist militants.
In the first line of the demonstration there were leaders of different organizations of the Front of All, among them national and provincial officials and legislators, and one of those who was there was the Buenos Aires deputy Adrián Grana (FdT), of the Militant Lealtad Current, who He was arrested by the Buenos Aires Police.
From that organization, which is part of Kirchnerism, they denounced the repression with a statement in which they confirmed the arrest of Grana, for “trying to stop the gases that the City police have accustomed us to every time the people demonstrate,” they warned.
Larroque also questioned Grana’s arrest, for which he blamed the head of the CABA government for his institutional role in commanding the Police.

In a Twitter thread, La Cámpora warned that the City Police did not allow the protesters who had approached the place, in the vicinity of Uruguay and Juncal, to reach the door of the building where the former president resides; She later denounced that the troops fired pepper spray “at those who did not promote any type of violent action.”

Lastly, the Minister of the Interior, Eduardo ‘Wado’ De Pedro, questioned the media treatment that the TN news signal, from Grupo Clarín, displayed throughout the day, since “they broadcast early from the private home of Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, without there being any people or any journalistic interest, urging that there be protests where they do not belong.”
Rodríguez Larreta answered Cristina
