CFK: May 1 is not a day for threats and aggression
The head of state spoke via telephone during an act headed by Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich, to inaugurate a new honey planet in the Province of Chaco.
"When Coqui [Capitanich] told me that on May 1 he was going to open this magnificent enterprise that Alejandro Malti is carrying out I wanted to be there with everyone who made this possible," Cristina told those in attendance.
"Honey as an Argentine product was not well-known and now we are placing it in front-line markets like Europe."
The president added that "this would not be possible without a national state, and in this case a provincial state, which takes such a strong interest to achieve this enterprise."
Referring to recent strong words from the likes of Teamsters Union boss Pablo Moyano, CFK underlined that peace and co-operation should be the goal of Workers' Day, instead of antagonism and violence.
"So the people, producers, businessmen, workers and governors of Chaco, many congratulations on this May 1," she stated.
"This is how May 1 should be marked, opening workplaces and not inciting, threatening nor assaulting, but working and producing.
"Así que pueblo, productores, empresarios, trabajadores y gobernantes del Chaco muchas felicitaciones en este 1 de Mayo. Así se festejan los 1 de Mayo, abriendo lugares de trabajo no incitando, ni amenazando, ni agraviando sino trabajando y produciendo", finalizó.
