Money invested in culture is money invested in security, Coscia
Following CFK’s announcement to move the Culture Secretariat headquarters to the Villa 21 shanty town, head of the office Jorge Coscia said “one peso invested in culture means 5 pesos saved in security.”
“Culture is reinvigorating, especially among most vulnerable sectors,” Coscia told reporters considering the government’s move will allow to broaden “socio-cultural perspectives.”
As the debate over crime and security takes the baton ahead of October’s legislative elections, Coscia targeted what he called “major media cover-up and secrecy” of the polices carried out by the Kirchnerite administration.
“This is the government that inaugurated cultural programs the most in the Argentine history,” the official stressed adding that 67 culture buildings have been put “under the carpet by some media.”
In that sense, the Secretary –whose office will be now located at the Villa 21 shanty town of the Buenos Aires City neighborhood of Barracas-, referred to “attitudes and sectors that want what they consider the kirchnerite nightmare to end, even ignoring the rules of democracy.”
