neighbors of hidden lake denounced that Kirchnerist demonstrators barged onto private roads and camped on protected land of the Blue Park, in the province of Río Negro.
The K excursion to the lake was led by the organization FIPCA (Interactive Foundation to Promote the Culture of Water). The call had already received the repudiation of the settlers of El Foyela town located 45 kilometers from El Bolsón, in the midst of tensions due to Mapuche violence in southern Argentina.
FIPCA is headed by Julio César Urien, andx militant of Montoneros. Behind the call are also ATE and CTA representativesthrough Alexander “Viking” Meyer.
The appointment was finally made this weekend. The neighbors denounced that the Kirchnerist militants tried to use a private neighborhood road called “Domingo Puchy”, among other infractions to a protected natural area.
Controversy over an expedition of Kirchnerists to Lago Escondido.
“They say they have a resolution, but they don’t. They lie, as they do every year. They are very aggressive. It is a private road, it is local: there is no problem with the neighbors, but people from outside comes with other intentions and we do not allow him to pass,” said a local.
Refers to roads built years ago by the settlers and that are not part of the municipal trails authorized for general access. In addition, they emphasize, it is not destined for the lake. The irruption of the demonstrators was thus seen as a provocation.
The Kirchnerist demonstrators met this Sunday with groups of neighbors, friends of the Region and the Manso Valley, who met under the motto “The Blue Park defends itself, it is not sailed and it is not camped”. They also promoted slogans “We are all Argentines.” Locals denounced attacks and destruction.
They also questioned, with the dissemination of photographs, the navigation of the militants in Lake Soberanía (belonging to the Escondido basin). aboard five kayaks.
Last Friday, the provincial Justice had rejected an injunction from the protesters. In that appeal they asked that “barriers, gates, security cameras and elements that hinder or impede free access” be removed from the Domingo Puchy road.
The appeal was filed by Facundo Montecino Odarda, Rio Negro legislator. He is also the son of Magdalena Odarda, head of the National Institute of Indigenous Affairs (INAI).
