"Argentines are quite authoritarian."

Interview with Graciela Fernández Meijide.

Politics and Economics
"I avoid the atmosphere of much noise that is proliferating today. For there to be dialogue, there must be two people who listen to each other," emphasizes Graciela Fernández Meijide, a reference point for human rights in the last forty years. With a look that exceeds resentments and cracks, who suffered the horror of the last dictatorship with the disappearance of his son Pablo, the former legislator and minister reinforces the idea that at this time we must "move from the discussion of individual rights to the human rights of all, including those of my victimizers. And putting the body to the debate still burning, Fernandez Meijide notes that in "the decriminalization of abortion ended up deciding a Senate with old thinking. But this development for more rights for women does not stop," says the social activist. The author of books on human rights and our recent history, who for the past two seasons has directed the talk show Cada Noche on Argentine Public Television, details that Argentines "like to put ourselves on the antipodes. What happens now, and is the worst, results in using the disqualification against the argumentation, and closes any possibility of dialogue. And as a final observation he launches "the crack that we must close is the crack of poverty. We have many young people who are running out of opportunities to participate in the technological world of the 21st century. Education is the key.
