Loss intellectuals They called on people to vote for the candidate who will come forward, Javier Miley, in a potential runoff and pointed out the importance of not supporting a party that supports state terrorism.

Meanwhile, the teacher and essayist Pablo Alabarces warned, “for the speech of mERCY The word of the other must be suppressed; this, as a metaphor, guides or can lead you to transform that metaphor into an act, that is, the censorship of all dissident voices.

Letter from intellectuals and citizen’s appeal before Javier Milei’s anti-democratic speech

The growth of the alt-right, represented by Javier Miley on Burn, developed hate speech, which undermines the democratic project that was rebuilt in Argentine society forty years ago. The promotion of social and political violence, the stigmatization of social projects, and the promotion of individualism as a solution to the deep problems that affect our society mean a radical change in culture.

Even more serious is the vindication of the military dictatorship and the proposal to erase the principles of truth and justice that guide an exemplary way of judging our society in the face of state violence. The foundations of democracy are facing the abyss of violence, from which it will be difficult to return if this right-wing movement that destroys the principles of our society comes to the government.

Survey: in an “uncertainty” scenario, Milei leads the polls and surpasses Massa by 4 points

As citizens of art, literature, science, cinema, music, theater, curatorship, and all cultural expressions, we express our concern about the change in culture that includes the denial and installation of the culture of violence.

The privatization of education, health, research, the threat hanging over the retirement system, job security, gender policies, feminisms, and different sexual identities represent antagonistic proposals to what we hold as valuable in culture and art.

We are very concerned that the experience of the governments of Donald Trump and Jair Bolsonaro is repeated in our country, installing an irrational and authoritarian government that promotes the value of violence and weapons as a means of regulation in social relations. They are the governments that cause a social fracture and a cultural collapse from which the citizens of the countries they lead will hardly ever recover.

We feel that we are on the edge of a cliff from which it is difficult and painful to return. In this sense, we call on you not to vote for Javier Milei in the October elections, and we invite the cultural world to sign this appeal to citizens in defense of the democratic values ​​that we have held for forty years.
