#Argentina - #Lula decidiu não ir à posse de #Milei no próximo domingo
Me imagino que si Milei es pro-libertad personal y que el Estado no se meta en tu vida, vamos a ver totalmente legalizado al cannabis, verdad? 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
Elegimos transitar el precipicio que nos dejo Alberto y Mauricio con un experto conductor: El standapero bipolar de Milei, que no le renovaron ni la pasantia del BCRA.
Salvese quien pueda, compren paracaidas.
Buen día #argentina !
Diplomacy is a funny old thing. Now that #Argentina is cooling on #BRICS membership, the BRICS side doesn't want us to say they were invited. It is more proper, you see, to say that BRICS accepted Argentina's application.
Flash back to August, and prepared remarks by the President of the Republic of South Africa in his capacity as BRICS chair, Cyril Ramaphosa: "We have decided to invite the Argentine Republic..."
"In light of the Installation and Assumption of a new Government in the Republic of Argentina, an inauguration scheduled for December 10th, and in response to repeated statements and expressions by the new authorities, the Government of Reconciliation and National Unity of Nicaragua has decided to withdraw its Ambassador, Comrade Writer and Communicator, Carlos Midence. The withdrawal is effective immediately."
Kissinger is still dead!
(But his legacy of supporting brutal dictatorships lives on.)
Imagine going to Bank of America Stadium to see competitive, world-class football.
Fourteen U.S. cities will play host to Copa América next summer, with the semifinals in Charlotte and East Rutherford, N.J.
Copa América in 2024 will add six teams from North America to go with the usual 10 from South America that compete for the continental championship.

It's a tad late but I've made a new video segment on the election in Argentina and why this shit keeps happening with the far right getting elected (hint: it's because of capitalism, like always). I go into it in detail in the video though, so if you want a more detailed explanation than that give it a watch!

Parte de la culpa de esta situación la tiene la censura del habla política en el 90% de los ambientes.
Al no permitirse la discusión política, se impidió que la gente aprenda a discutir y hablar de temas delicados como gente adulta y madura.
¿Resultado? Generaciones enteras de "apolíticos" que se comen todo lo que sale de los medios hegemónicos como si fuera verdad absoluta e incuestionable.
Agregar a eso las mal llamadas "redes sociales" y sus malditos algoritmos, y el resultado es un cóctel que solo puede terminar en desastre.
El chicaneo pelotudo y el termocefalismo le ganaron terreno a la discusión seria.
Muy triste todo.
The president-elect of #Argentina, the far-right Javier Milei, appointed Rodolfo Barra, a former Minister of Justice forced to resign in 1996 due to his past in pro-Nazi organizations, as the future head of the State’s Attorneys this Friday. The appointment, which will take effect on December 10, generated rejection from the Jewish community in Argentina, the largest in Latin America.
⬆️ #Kissinger. What a legacy!
Declassified record show he was:
—chief architect of US policy to undermine & destabilize the #Allende government in 1970
—chief enabler of helping the #military #dictatorship of Augusto #Pinochet after 1973 coup
Unaffected by tales of suffering, he told #Argentina’s FM in 1976 “If there are things that have to be done, you should do them quickly.”
Back from a research trip to Buenos Aires. Still buzzing. Learned so much—also because the president elect was staying in the same hotel and every single taxi driver wanted to share their opinion. Turbulent times!

Milei did not directly reference #LGBTQIA+ #rights during #campaigning but said that, if elected, he would close down the #ministry of #women, #gender and #diversity, which addresses #LGBTQIA+ #equality, and has talked of waging a “#cultural #battle” against #socialism and #feminism.
Mass murderer and War Criminal Henry Kissinger is finally dead!
He won the Nobel Peace Prize, along with Lê Đức Thọ, for their work in orchestrating a ceasefire in the Vietnam War. Two Nobel Prize committee members resigned in protest. During his diplomatic career, Kissinger was involved in orchestrating and/or supporting the Chilean coup and Pinochet dictatorship (over 3,000 killed); the Argentine Dictatorship (up to 30,000 killed); the Pakistani genocide in Bangladesh (3 million killed); and the Genocide in East Timor (up to 300,000 killed).
Argentine President-elect Javier Milei has offered glimpses into how Catholicism, the Torah and his belief in a "libertarian" God shape his idiosyncratic worldview. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2023/11/30/world/politics/milei-catholicism-torah-libertarian-god/?utm_content=buffer533fd&utm_medium=social&utm_source=mastodon&utm_campaign=bffmstdn #worldnews #politics #argentina #javiermilei #catholicism #judaism #libertarianism

Javier Milei’s incoming administration is shaping up to be one of the most pro-Israel governments in Argentina’s history, at a time other Latin American nations have spoken out against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s strategy to eradicate Hamas. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2023/11/28/world/politics/milei-judaism-israel-argentina/?utm_content=buffer23628&utm_medium=social&utm_source=mastodon&utm_campaign=bffmstdn #worldnews #politics #javiermilei #israel #argentina #southamerica #israelhamaswar

There will be more lost years
The far-right libertarian Javier #Milei has pledged to hold a vote to ban abortion, just 3 years after Argentina legalised it.
And the country’s feminists are gearing up for a big fight to protect their reproductive rights.”

Argentina's far right set to take power: Fears over president-elect's governance agenda
#Argentina #Milei #Authoritarianism #AnarchoCapitalism #PressFreedom #Media #News #Journalism: "In this context, some Milei supporters have taken to threatening those they disagree with by sending them photos of green Ford Falcons with no licence plates – the vehicle the dictatorship’s security forces used to abduct their victims.
“The green Ford Falcon means endorsing the disappearance, torture and extremely violent death of all those who opposed the dictatorship,” said Beatriz Busaniche, president of the human rights and technology foundation, Vía Libre. She described Milei and Villarruel’s denialism as “re-legitimising” discourse that was widely discredited in Argentine society.
“There’s been a retreat of public discourse,” she said. “The sphere of public debate has become so aggressive that many people have started to lock their accounts and leave social media.”
Despite his promises, it is not clear whether Milei would be able to privatise Argentina’s public media, because doing so would require changing the law that governs them, explained Agus Lecchi, secretary general of the SiPreBA journalists’ union, who works for Argentina’s Televisión Pública. That means it would have to pass through Argentina’s congress. Milei’s Freedom Advances coalition will not have a majority in either the deputies or the senate.
Nonetheless, Argentina’s public media have come under fire from hostile governments before: in 2018, right-wing President Mauricio Macri’s administration attempted to lay off 68 journalists at the state news agency, Télam, although all were reincorporated after a labour court found their dismissals to be illegal."

Huge congratulations to Argentina who have elected Javier Milei as their next president! You can think of Milei as Argentina’s Trump, Bolsonaro, Farage, Netanyahu, or Leatherface.

Veo que estáis llegando mucha gente nueva de #Argentina a Mastodon. Supongo que será por encontrar espacios seguros durante estos años duros que os esperan tras la victoria del gilipollas de Miley.
Espero que podáis encontrar ese espacio seguro donde poder expresaros, crear apoyo mutuo y organizar las resistencias.
Bienvenides a todes.
Note to journalists: please don't describe Milei as a "libertarian".
He wants to ban abortion.
Libertarians don't use the power of the state to compel women to give birth against their will.
The word you're looking for is "authoritarian misogynist nutjob".
Good morning. It's 9AM, Monday, 20th November. The headlines: Javier #Milei has been elected as #Argentina's new president with 55.7% of the vote, a victory celebrated by leaders such as #Trump and Bolsonaro. The world mourns the passing of former US First Lady Rosalynn Carter, remembering her impactful legacy. Napoleon's iconic hat has been sold at auction for millions. #JavierMilei #BBC #News
@leodurruti non avevo dubbi su #Argentina . Spero che #Milei rispetti suo programma é istauri l'anarco-capitalismo come promesso. Niente tasse e servizi pubblici, tutto in mano ai privati, al mercato, che costerà piú che le tasse ovvio ai cittadini. Un grande esperimento sociale che servirá da lezione per i 100 popoli che vedranno ridursi in schiavi i lavoratori argentini.
We've seen versions of this before, but perhaps Argentina starts from a different place.
But, the radical right keeps being given the chance to impose its view of society & at some later point a growing portion of voters come to understand its a false narrative that actually only benefits the rich.
Its extraordinary they keep getting away with it!
The news of a far-right populist trumpist nutjob winning control of #Argentina… is literally the last item on the Guardian's frontpage right now. wtf? 🤬
News at 6AM: Former US First Lady Rosalynn Carter has passed away at age 96, leaving behind a legacy of mental health advocacy. #Argentina welcomes Javier #Milei as its new president. Families are taking legal action against social media companies, blaming them for their children's mental health issues. The IDF has released footage of what it claims is a tunnel under Al-Shifa Hospital. 31 premature babies were evacuated from the hospital by the WHO. #BBC #News
Reminder: #Argentina is fucked up again, just like in 2015, 2001, 1989, 1976, 1966 or 1955.
The lesson is that capitalism, fuelled by cronyism, corruption, incompetence, and opportunists seeking to only advance themselves, will ensure fascism is the outcome. There is no future with fascism; only decay and collapse. They are universal dimwits. #Argentina #Melei #LatAm #fascism #extremism https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2023/11/19/argentina-presidential-election-results-javier-milei/
Argentina's far-right, chainsaw-wielding populist has become president. He promised to eliminate the ministries of culture, education, environment, women, gender, diversity, and even repeal legalized abortion.
