Political movements and personalities of public life in Argentina demand this Sunday the immediate release of the social leader Milagro Sala, on the occasion of the sixth anniversary of her imprisonment.


They will denounce harassment against Argentine leader Milagro Sala

In an open letter published in local media, human rights organizations, governors, ministers of the national government and deputies and senators from the Front for All called for Sala's freedom, and described his detention as arbitrary and illegal.

The signatories maintained that with political prisoners there is no full democracy, and repudiated the harassment suffered by the leader of the Tupac Amaru movement, who has been in preventive detention since 2016 despite the fact that the current law provides that the limit of this precautionary measure is two years. .

In addition, they considered that his case became a laboratory for the use of lawfare, the criminalization of protest and the imprisonment of political, social and union leaders as a practice during the presidential term of Mauricio Macri (2015-2019).

Sala was arrested on January 16, 2016, while she was leading a mobilization to demand that the governor of Jujuy (north), Gerardo Morales, listen to the demands of thousands of housing cooperatives demanding the continuity of 20,000 jobs.

From prison he has denounced the humiliation, outrage, judicial persecution and violence he has suffered in these years, which motivated the Center for Legal and Social Studies (CELS) and Lawyers of Northwestern Argentina in Human Rights and Social Studies (Andhes) denounce the federal state before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR).

The current Minister of Women, Gender and Diversity, Elizabeth Gómez Alcorta, who was a Sala lawyer, gave statements to a local radio station, in which she called on the Supreme Court to resolve one of the cases against the leader that two years ago awaits resolution .

Among other expressions of support for Sala, this Sunday a virtual meeting will be held, scheduled for 4:00 p.m. local time, to demand his release.

The letter demanding his release is signed by Estela de Carlotto, Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, Máximo Kirchner, Axel Kicillof, Tristán Bauer, Horacio Verbitsky, Víctor Hugo Morales, Baltazar Garzón, Cecilia Roth and many more.
