Broad Front UNEN present constitutional protection over ex-ESMA
Broad Front UNEN lawmakers filed today a constitutional protection over the ex Navy Mechanics School (ESMA) and other four dictatorship-era memorials, to stop its transfer from the Buenos Aires City administration to the federal government.
FAU harshly criticized the measure approved yesterday in the Legislature by 41 positive votes and 16 negatives, which dictates the hand over and dissolves the Instituto Espacio para la Memoria (IEM).
“The transfer is not constitutional. It’s an illegal and arbitrary decision, the result of an agreement between the PRO party and the Victory Front (FPV),” FAU affirmed in a press release.
