MP of the radical left in Argentina to speak in London
These upcoming meetings might be of interest to supporters and friends of the Anticapitalist Initiative
Christian Castillo, recently elected deputy for Buenos Aires Province, will be speaking on the recent election campaign, waged by the Workers’ and Left Front (FIT) on its policies and on the class struggle in Argentina. The FIT brings together the PTS (Partido de Trabajadores Socialistas) of which Christian is a leading member, the PO (Partido Obrero) and the IS (Izquierda Socialista). It gained over 1 million votes or 5.11 per cent nationally in the October 27 elections, gaining three seats in the Argentine Congress and eight seats in various provincial parliaments.
FIT MP, and member of the PTS, Nicolás del Caño, said on taking his seat in December: “We are going to put our parliamentary seats at the service of the workers’ struggles against the employers, the government and the union bureaucracy. We are going to support the struggle to recover the unions, in order to confront austerity and the limits on wages that the government wants to impose. Our parliamentary seats will also be a platform and a rostrum, so that the struggle of the women’s movement against the clerical reform of the Civil Code and for the law that will guarantee legal, safe and free abortion, can be expressed.”
There will be ample time for all to contribute.
