The symbols present are marks of both the #political and #economic consumption of the neighbourhood. From a drink that costs half as much as a #coke to a #cellphone with the image of #evita , they are a representation of both the workers, and the political function of these neighbourhoods. For many years, a stigmatisation of poverty has existed, an abandonment by the state, a self-serving vision put forward by the media of a much more complex situation. Sarmiento thought the problem of #argentina was between that of a civilised society or a barbaric one, but paradoxically, 130 years later, it seems that we carry on thinking the same. Right now, Sarmiento is on the 50 pesos bill, which is what a kilo of bread costs in El Monte, Quilmes.
