Biography

Solano started his political activism in 1992, opposing the government of Carlos Menem. Solano briefly joined the Socialist Party before leading Unión de Juventudes por el Socialismo (English: "Youth Union for Socialism").[4]

He participated in the World Social Forum in 2002 and 2005 in Brazil and Venezuela, respectively.[4]

He has written articles on education, economic policy, and youth as a columnist for La Política Online,[5] Infobae,[6] and Prensa Obrera.[7]

As a legislator, he worked to address educational reform, particularly educational infrastructure.[8][9] He wrote a bill that would codify the separation of church and state in Buenos Aires.[10]

Solano promoted investigating the death of Santiago Maldonado,[11] assigning responsibility to the government.[12]

He criticized Mauricio Macri's Armed Forces reform policy, arguing the changes "hide a repressive plan."[13] In 2018, he opposed a labor reform package that included an agreement with the International Monetary Fund,[14] promoting a "labor movement" struggle over "labor reform."[15]

Solano was defeated in the 2023 primary elections.[16]
