Argentina caught between its past and future. The unions held a march against the government of Macri.
Today was the first march of the unions against the government of Mauricio Macri.
The march, is lit by the next elections of senators and deputies.
The guilds are demanding layoffs and price increases. Especially the increases in the energy sector, driven by the government that led to electricity and natural gas to rise above 400%, in the last year.
Although the guilds have just their claim, one can not help but think that we still see in the sectors of Argentine society hard nucleos, who continue to think that the way forward is with violence and demonstrating that power is won on the street.
People, the citizens, are those who have political power. Argentina, in its great majority bets to reslot the economy, the education and the justice with ideas and with work.
These images are waves of a past that refuses to change.
The General Confederation of Labor (CGT) threatened this afternoon to make a national strike, although it did not communicate what day and subordinated it to the government of Mauricio Macri not make “rectifications” in the direction of the economy. According to trade unionist Juan Carlos Schmid, the second speaker before the crowd that gathered in downtown Buenos Aires, the measure force would be made later this month or early April, but gave no more data.
