Ricardo Forster against 'restricting right to protest'

Philosopher Ricardo Forster, one of the leading names behind the Carta Abierta intellectual movement that since 2008 has defended Cristina de Kirchner's presidency, criticized today the Kirchnerite anti-picket project and said he disagrees with "having to ask for permission to protest."

Forster joined a group of Kirchnerite allies that have expressed concerns for the project. "We have to be very careful when restricting rights, we have to be careful with who decides whether to allow a public protest, I disagree with having to ask for premission to protest," Forster said in an interview for newspaper El Tribuno de Salta.

In any case, former lower house candidate for the Victory Front said that the project "should have been put up for debate" and pointed out that "in the Victory Front surely there are different stances" regarding the project.

"I think the project is missing something very important, which is to allow the right for social protest. I believe it is presented from a more negative than positive point of view", he said and underscored that "in the last 20 years in Argentina, roadblocks have been a very complex way of reflecting the unsatisfied demands of a part of society."
