Buenos Aires Streets Blocked for Unions’ Anti-Government Protest March

BUENOS AIRES – Buenos Aires awoke Friday to find streets cut off at various points around the city, with still more expected to be blockaded throughout the day ahead of the protest march called this afternoon by unions and social organizations against the government of President Mauricio Macri.

Groups making up the Organizations on the Fighting Front have blocked bridges providing access to the Puerto Madero neighborhood, while leftist parties have cut off the intersection of two main thoroughfares of the capital’s downtown area.

Further roadblocks are planned Friday for the so-called “federal march,” called by a number of social organizations and opposition parties.

The march set out from different parts of Argentina’s interior last Wednesday with five main columns of demonstrators who will reach Buenos Aires this Friday to join in a protest at the Plaza de Mayo in front of Argentina’s seat of government.

The protest was called to denounce the Macri government for the country’s unemployment, belt-tightening measures and big price increases on public services.

Added to these complaints are others related individually to the different sectors joining in the march, such as demands to resume wage negotiations, aid for cooperatives and pension increases.
