During the day, the reading of the document “For a democratic and independent justice, political trial and removal of the Supreme Court” took place in a crowd concentrated in Plaza Lavalle.
In this sense, the report states that “those of us who mobilized this May 5, consider all these events to be of enormous institutional gravity, which endanger the Republic and that is why we demand the immediate removal of Horacio Rosatti, Carlos Rosenkrantz, Juan Carlos Maqueda and Ricardo Lorenzetti.
The demonstration with the motto “For the democratization of the Judiciary” takes place in the framework of the discussion by the Senate of a project that seeks to expand the court of the Supreme Court of Justice.
Likewise, the protesters affirm: “This Court reproduces the founding logic of the system. It is class-oriented, patriarchal, misogynistic and elitist. We demand a Supreme Court that promotes the transformation of the Judicial Power and its habitual practices, which today translate into sentences contrary to non-discrimination, equality and full respect for human dignity”.
