“They are for political interests”

The journalist Huber Cracogna hails from Villa Ocampo, Santa Fe, a town 80 kilometers from Avellaneda, the city where Vicentin is located. In dialogue with Radio Noticias, he affirmed that those who carried out the banderazos respond to political interests and that they were not producers. “It is very rare and strange that people who talk about private property, their growth has been due to the ‘generosity’ that the State has had,” he assured. Santa Fe governor Omar Perotti presented a project but has not yet obtained the opinion of justice. “Everything is stopped in the case, but until this boy (by federal judge Fabián Lorenzini) is not removed or until the nationalization project is presented in Congress, I believe that we will not have progress,” he said. Cracogna. “Vicentin is a family business that is 90 years old, which has made a very strong commitment to production but, like many other companies, has been tempted by that dark door that the same story invited them to,” the journalist explained to review the origins of the firm. And he recalled that during the dictatorship of Juan Carlos Onganía the firm received fiscal land “for which it never paid a peso” and added that in 1982 the debt they had was absorbed by the State. “We took on a huge debt.” “The private property thing is falling apart on this,” Cracogna said. “We have paid that debt with a lack of schools, education, public works, hospitals, poverty and misery, in this way the Argentine people took care of these people”. Faced with this situation of repeated bailouts, the The journalist stated that it is “very rare that these people now come to try to avoid an expropriation that allows us, among other things, to open a new country in a kind of balance.” “What we are trying to do here is prevent the State from having a leg in this great business where the cereal companies manage enormous power,” he assured. He also made a caveat about the company: “Let’s move away from the idea that it is a family business, that they are poor people.” “Bobazo”. After the announcement of the expropriation of the cereal, some sectors called to demonstrate against this government decision. These demonstrations, according to Cracogna, were “on demand”. “This cacerolazo, Banderazo, bobazo that they did, they did at the request of a Buenos Aires channel,” he affirmed and detailed that “an attempt was made to lead a kind of ‘sinecdóque’ saying that it was not only Avellaneda, but that it was the north of Santa Fe. Those people who were there represent 10% of what Avellaneda is, and most of those people are not even producers, they are political leaders of the mayor, “he explained and clarified that what mobilizes them is the political interest in continuing to hold positions. “They try to save what they understand as a privilege that has allowed them to build a caste that has governed that town for 40 years,” he assured. “They passed me a report from the Avellaneda cooperative, which is the second largest company in the locality, which owes 177 million pesos “, stressed Cracogna but also explained that” the cooperativists were not waving flags but they did not come out to say this because in reality they are also part of the kidney of all this strange articulation, all this sinister coexistence of power factual, which is Vicentin, with the political power that has made them all absolute ‘rigolettos’, but not now, “he said.” Actually what these people want is that the E This takes over, as he did so many times, that we pay the shit to everyone and then continue doing what they have been doing. But not only the political power of Avellaneda, they have had enormous power in the province, “he said. Judge, and part? The decree signed by Alberto Fernández named Gabriel Delgado as intervener of the firm, but days later Judge Lorenzini reinstated the Vicentin management, leaving Delgado as a seer. “I have the idea that while the current judge is carrying out this process, absolutely nothing will advance, because in reality the judge did not give place to what Perotti proposed and ignored the articles, that decree that the President signed,” he said. . On the judge’s career, the journalist said that it was known that Lorenzini worked for 18 years at Banco Nación and that his signature is on the loans granted to the cereal company. «He approved the granting of the credits to Vicentin. When he put it to Lorenzini, what was said was that the company was going to challenge him, now we know why he did not challenge him, because it was the man who signed part of those credits, “he said. “This has no way back” “I think that what was announced from the Nation has no way back,” said Cracogna. “It gives me the impression that it marks a before and after in Argentina and you cannot back down from that, I do not see an improvised Alberto Fernández and making banal announcements regarding this.” He also stated that it is also “the history of Argentina that has to end once and for all, the foolish state has to end, accomplice, Argentina has to end where the people pay the shit out of big business.”
