Civil society organizations called for stopping the advance of political violence and hate speech

Different sectors of civil society came together today to repudiate the assassination attempt against Cristina Fernández de Kirchner on the night of Thursday, September 1. They did so in a statement titled In Defense of Democracy.

“Since the attempted assassination of Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, the undersigned civil society organizations want to express our strong repudiation of an act that puts democracy at risk. We demand the clarification of what happened and an effective action of Justice. We ask those who represent us to act with the utmost responsibility," says the statement released today, Friday.

"We call on the entire leadership and society as a whole to stop the advance of political violence and hate speech that threaten the peaceful coexistence that we have managed to build during these 40 years of democracy," he concludes.
