PRESS RELEASE


Argentina's Macri Moves To Undo China Infrastructure Accords, and Go with the Queen's Environmentalists Instead

Dec. 28, 2015 (EIRNS)—Argentina's London-owned President Mauricio Macri has moved with lightning speed since his Dec. 10 inauguration to again place his country under the thumb of the British Queen and her puppet, Barack Obama.

According to the Dec. 27 daily Clarín, itself a City of London asset, during a Dec. 21 meeting with Christine McDivitt, widow of the recently-deceased American environmentalist Douglas Tomkins, and with Sofia Heinonen, head of Tomkins' Conservation Land Trust, Macri said he would try to stop the construction of the giant Kirchner-Cepernic hydroelectric complex in Santa Cruz province. In 2014, former President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and Chinese President Xi Jinping signed an agreement to build the project, construction of which has already begun, financed by the China Development Bank Corp., Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, and Bank of China Ltd.

The hydroelectric project was one of several that Cristina Fernández signed with BRICS member China, enraging London-controlled environmentalist and depopulation fanatics. Now, Macri has surrounded himself with exactly this crowd. In a speech to businessmen two weeks ago, Clarín reports, Macri vowed he would be "implacable with those who don't care for the environment." Present at the Dec. 21 meeting was his Environment Minister Sergio Bergman, who has stated that Pope Francis' Laudate Si' encyclical will guide his environmentalist activities. Bergman has named several environmentalists to posts in his ministry, including the head of the World Wide Fund for Nature's (WWF) local branch, Fundación Vida Silvestre.

McDivitt and Heinonen reportedly told Macri that the hydroelectric dams were an "aberration," would cause irreparable environmental harm, and that they thought there were cleaner, more efficient and less harmful ways to produce energy. It was at this point that, according to Bergman's own report, Macri said "we're going to try to stop them." Nor is this project the only one he'll try to stop. According to Diego Guelar, Argentina's new ambassador to China, there will have to be a review of all the agreements signed with China, as they all "lack transparency."
