According to Clarin this government has literally funded those who rampage down 9 de Julio and ruin other people's lives to the tune of over US$75 million in the last three years.
This is over and above the social security these people receive.
THE GOVERNMENT FINANCED PIQUETEROS WITH $ 10 BILLION OF DISCRETIONARY FUNDS
Discretionary government transfers to 291 associations and 204 cooperatives that respond to piqueteros groups reached $ 10,330 million since the beginning of Alberto Fernandez's mandate until the first half of 2022. The figure is equivalent to more than US$ 75 million, according to the average dollar of the Banco Nación in this period.
These are funds that are not included in the central social assistance programmes, which encompass even greater resources, and which come from small ministerial structures, direct transfers to the piqueteros, with which the functioning of these social organisations is financed.
From the list, with official data accessed by Clarín, it emerges that associations and cooperatives that form part of the Frente de Todos were the most favoured by the transfers from the state. Although the corporate name of each one does not identify them, when one asks who is behind them, their political affiliation is confirmed.
