12.09.2013 One week after the vote on the agreement with Chevron and the repression in the Legislature, what is the political situation in the province?
Wednesday, August 28, was a turning point that exposed a big crisis in the province. In the first place, there is widespread repudiation of the agreement with Chevon that the MPN and the Kirchner supporters voted for in the Legislature, added to the repudiation of the brutal repression. Even what began as a rejection of the method of fracking, because of the high level of contamination, was also turned into an anti-imperialist feeling, because of the surrender of the natural resources to this US multinational corporation. The mask of "nationalists and populists" or of "progressives" fell from many politicians, because they aligned themselves completely with Chevron, and thousands saw it.
