“Without economic independence, there is no social justice and democracy is put in check”

Governor Kicillof spoke by Zoom at the PJ Summit in Mendoza.

The Governor of the Province of Buenos Aires, Axel Kicilloconsidered this Saturday “Without economic independence, social justice is not achieved and democracy is put in check”by participating virtually in the plenary ‘Future Peronism’ organized by the Partido Justicialista (PJ) of Mendoza.

Before hundreds of militants who filled the Ángel Bustelo auditorium in the city of Mendoza, Kicillof spoke virtually -through the Zoom platform- about the three banners of justicialism “economic independence, political sovereignty and social justice” and updating the doctrine of the movement founded by former president Juan Domingo Perón.

“With the pandemic, although the world of 1945 changed a lot, political sovereignty and economic independence reappeared with the importance of the concept of local production. So, the concept of economic independence is more valid than everalthough integration with other countries of the subcontinent must always be taken into account,” he said in his speech.

In this sense, the Buenos Aires president maintained that “without economic independence, we will not only have problems achieving the objectives of social justice, but the problem of democracy itself is called into question, since without economic independence, with submission and dependence to international finance, democracy is also put at stake and in check”.

Kicillof Governments have very limited degrees of freedom to solve and address the problems of Argentina
Kicillof: “Governments have very limited degrees of freedom to resolve and address Argentina’s problems.”

In this regard, he explained that “democracy” is put in check because “when you vote every 4 years, those governments that are elected have very limited degrees of freedom to solve and address the problems of Argentina.”

When analyzing the world economic and geopolitical situation, Kicillof stated that “it is very clear that the architecture of political governance and international finance that was built after the Second World War with the UN and the IMF or The World Bank has become completely anachronistic and outdated because there were rearrangements that it leaves out and cannot provide answers, since they leave the world more unequal and helpless”.

In that sense, he said that “Perón’s proposal to propose a third position from the periphery becomes even more important. From Argentina and the region, it is time to state that the independence of national states requires strong regional ties to be able to express themselves”.

“Economic independence is at the base to achieve social justice and that is why we have to update the justicialist doctrine”, closed the economist.
