Argentine Justicialist Party rejects Milei’s bill

Buenos Aires, May 15 (Prensa Latina) The Justicialist Party (PJ) reiterated its rejection to the so-called Omnibus Law which is being analyzed today in the Argentine Senate and urged to carry out mobilizations against it.

The bill Ley Bases y Puntos de Partida para la Libertad de los Argentinos (Omnibus) grants powers for one year to President Javier Milei under pretext of declaring an emergency in administrative, economic, financial and energy matters. It also provides for the reform of the State, the privatization of public companies, the modification of the labor and social security system, among other measures.

In a communiqué, the PJ warned that this set of regulations ‘leads to the auction of this nation, the unjustifiable surrender of natural assets to foreign interests, the reduction of labor rights for the benefit of big capital and the freeing of imports to the detriment of national industry’.

It also allows ‘the regressive distribution of wealth by inverting the tax burden to the detriment of the salaried workers and to the benefit of the richest, the elimination of the possibility of retirement for nine out of ten women, the dismantling of the State and the shameful surrender of sovereignty’.

The PJ pointed out that this project was rejected by trade unions, sectorial entities that bring together industries, small and medium-sized companies, the scientific-technological complex and various organizations.

It is not a base for growth, but a platform for the plundering of resources, putting Argentina in the place of a sad colony, in line with the project led by Milei together with those who were part of the government of Mauricio Macri (2015-2019), the text indicates.

General Juan Domingo Peron (1895-19749) was clear in the Constituent Convention of 1949: ‘What the people wish is not to tolerate outrages from outside or inside, not to admit political or economic vassalage; to live in peace with the whole world, to respect the freedom of others on condition that they respect our own freedom; to eliminate social injustices, to love the Homeland and to defend the flag until our last breath’, adds the document.

The PJ asserted that such teachings are part of a mandate that this organization must fulfill. ef/abo/mem/gas
