José Luis Espert used his social networks to refer to October 12 and generated a strong controversy. “Tomorrow, October 12, normal human beings celebrate, like all life, Columbus Day. And there is nothing racist about that. The Kirchnerist drugged apes, we don’t know what linguistic monstrosity they will celebrate ”, fired the candidate for national deputy in the province of Buenos Aires through the Avanza Libertad space.
In this context, referents from the group “Octubre Marrón” and the Institute of Indigenous Affairs (INAI) repudiated the candidate’s statements. The referent of the group “Brown October” Alejandro Mamani assured that they are evaluating “filing a complaint” and “taking legal action” considering that these are “serious statements, especially coming from a candidate for national deputy.” “They are asymptomatic expressions that reflect the structural racism that subsists in this society,” he said.
