“Cristina is supported by thousands of people not only in the country but also internationally,” the Nobel Peace Prize winner said in statements made to El Destape.
In this line, the professor awarded in 1980 for his fight for human rights, highlighted that “they want to apply a soft blow” to the Vice President to “get her out of the way“, as happened with other Latin American leaders such as “Emanuel Zelaya (Honduras), Lula Da Silva and Dilma Rousseff (both from Brazil), Evo Morales (Bolivia) and Rafael Correa (Ecuador)”.

“The sport of the popular field is standing up in defense of Cristina”
Athletes from the popular field led by the former volleyball player Jon Uriarte expressed their support for Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and assured that the sector is “standing up, in defense” of the former president, against the request for a sentence of 12 years in prison and disqualification from holding public office requested by prosecutors Diego Luciani and Sergio Mola in the framework of the trial for public works in Santa Cruz.
“The popular field sport is standing up in defense of Cristina,” said Uriarte, winner of the bronze medal at the Seoul ’88 Olympic Games and founder of the political organization Voleibolistas del Campo Popular, who met last night with pro-government legislators in the “Néstor Kirchner Youth Hall”, located on the third floor of the Legislative Palace.
In this sense, Uriarte argued that, “When the right comes for Cristina, they are defending a country model for the few that leaves half of Argentines out of any development project, where the State renounces the attempt to guarantee equal opportunities and does not dare to dismantle privileges “.
In addition, the coach of the Argentine volleyball team between 2005 and 2008, stated that high performance also supports those who “in 2009 made the political decision to create the National High Performance Sports Entity (Enard), a mixed management entity with economic autonomy With the rate of 1% on cell phone subscriptions, it provided Enard with economic predictability, an essential platform for sports planning in four-year Olympic cycles.”
“A few years after being launched, with unanimity in the opinion of all the actors, the Enard is shown as an extraordinary qualitative leap for the sport of Argentina, the most important strategic decision in public policies in decades. To be exact, you have to go back to the first Peronist government to find in the Evita Games and the support for athletes a policy with a similar impact.“, Uriarte said, while criticizing the policies of macrismo.
