What is the project to control the violence of the night about?

In 2006, martin castelucci He was beaten to death by a patovica in the La Casona de Lanús bowling alley. The fact motivated his father to promote, years later, a project to create a National Night Agency with the aim of reducing violence at night.

While the trial for the death of Fernando Baez Sosa in Dolores the debate over night violence is reestablished. To the young law student, on December 18, 2020, an alleged discussion in the bowling alley the brique It ended up costing him his life at the hands of a group of boys his own age.

The Castellucci case was different but it was also engendered within the framework of a night of fun: he was beaten to death by the patovica Jose Linqueo Catalan, who is also an amateur boxer. The attacker was imprisoned for 11 years and 9 months until he regained his freedom.

Martin Castelucci was assassinated in 2006.

Oscar, the young man’s father, since then has been pushing proposals so that the night ceases to be a violent space. One of them is the creation of the Night Agency that brought him closer to the deputy Toniolli.

For example, problematic consumption in Sedronar, discrimination in INADI or security within the framework of the Ministry of Security,” says Toniolli. to this medium. The idea is that all these dispersed policies are brought together in an agency to “build a night of coexistence, free of violence.”

Toniolli adds that the agency would work with two permanent councils: “A council that incorporates representatives of all these organizations (INADI, Ministry of Security, Sedronar and others) to plan orderly public policies and with their own logic; and on the other, one more council consultative process that involves different actors from civil society and activities such as family associations of victims”.

The congressman reveals that the lack of data on nighttime violence is also a deficit that makes it difficult to combat the problem. “There are no statistics. What there is eventually in the framework of provincial justice or jurisdictions is a typification of different facts. Different situations in which you try to apprehend. What we promote is to create an observatory to generate statistics,” he adds.

The project hits the wall of polarization

The request for impeachment that Alberto Fernández pushes against the Supreme Court this week originated a strong position in Together for Change: it does not support any law that comes from the ruling party until the accusation against the four judges of the highest court is withdrawn.

In the case of the deputy project that Castellucci and Toniolli presented in November, he would suffer the same fate, since he is a member of the Frente de Todos. As lucky as they will be, if polarization continues to eat away at Congress, other proposals such as the rental law or the creation of public universities.

Toniolli is not optimistic and says that “he does not envision a normal functioning” of the coalitions in the Chamber of Deputies.
