Marcos Galperín reacted to the Anticapitalist Camp

“We anti-capitalists do not want to go back on all the technological developments that humanity generated and live in a cave. What we want is that all people can access them and not just a minority. Inequality is enormous and while some millionaires ride a rocket, you have precarious kids who ride bicycles like application slaves and it is not enough for them to make ends meet. Anti-capitalism is a real feeling of many people here and around the world. That is why it also bothers libertarians and the right in general so much,” the leader opined.

My mother, as a police officer, works 24-hour guards, my 67-year-old grandmother is a domestic employee, they taught me the value of work and never wanted any help from the State. From there I speak, ”she continued.
