US media posts Greenpeace ad against CFK

In an attempt to take advantage of President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner's visit to the US (CFK is attending the Nuclear Security Summit), Greenpeace has posted a paid announcement in The Washington Post newspaper as a way to protest against the construction of a coal-fuelled power plant in Río Turbio, Santa Cruz province.

The ad is titled "Don't cry for me Patagonia", and Fernández de Kirchner has been caricatured as Eva Perón.

The announcement, which fills page 11 of the US tabloid, goes: "A woman with a long term political vision would have not endangered the glaciers and water reserves of Argentina", and continues, "Mrs. President, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner: During your visit to the USA, Greenpeace Argentina would like to ask you to consider this. Right now, your government is building a coal power plant in the heart of Patagonia, in the south of the Argentina. This is part of a wider plan to make huge investments in this dirty source of power, one of the biggest causes of global warming."

The ad finishes, "When you go home, why not support the common desire of people all over the world for a greener future. For us, and for all generations."
