President Alberto Fernández repudiated this Sunday “the attempted coup” in Brasilia and, as president pro tempore of Celac and Mercosur, called on member countries to unite “in this unacceptable anti-democratic reaction that is trying to impose itself in Brazil.”
This was stated by the head of state on his Twitter account, where he stated: “Democracy is the only political system that guarantees freedoms and obliges us to respect the popular verdict.”
“Those who try to ignore the will of the majorities, threaten democracy and deserve not only the corresponding legal sanction, but also the absolute rejection of the international community,” added Fernández regarding the seizure of the Planalto Palace, the National Congress and the Supremo Tribunal Federal (Supreme Court), in Brasilia.
Along these lines, the president expressed his “repudiation of what is happening in Brasilia” and expressed his “unconditional support and that of the Argentine people for (Brazilian President) Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva in the face of this attempted coup that is facing up”.
“As president of Celac and Mercosur, I put the member countries on alert so that we unite in this unacceptable anti-democratic reaction that is trying to impose itself in Brazil”he exhorted.
He also asked to demonstrate “firmly and with unity our total adherence to the government democratically elected by the Brazilians headed by President Lula.”
“We are together with the Brazilian people to defend democracy and never again allow the return of the coup ghosts promoted by the right,” he concluded.
I want to express my rejection of what is happening in Brasilia. My unconditional support and that of the Argentine people to @LulaOficial in the face of this attempted coup d’état that it is facing.
