CFK on lynchings: ‘Some people want us to return to barbarism’
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner today has commented on the lynching cases that happened last week in Buenos Aires, Santa Fe, and other provinces, saying some people “want us to return to barbarism.”
“We were accused of having an ‘aggressive speech’, but it’s them who behave violently. Some people want us to return to barbarism,” said the President during the opening ceremony of the Word Federal Encounter held at Tecnópolis in Villa Martelli.
Ms Kirchner urged to be “rational and civilized," and affirmed “education and social inclusion are the ultimate ways of solving these problems.”
The President also urged the media not to “hide good news,” and pointed out that “the words used can be words of anger and critique, but not words of hate.”
“We cannot allow hate to become part of our society,” CFK concluded.
