Striking Argentine Workers Hold Demo to Demand Tax Cuts
Posted by David Icke
'Argentina’s General Workers Confederation (CGT) -- an umbrella group for various unions in the country -- organized the protest, which was held outside the presidential palace on Wednesday, The Washington Post reported.
Striking union members, including truck drivers, garbage collectors, newspaper and food distributors, rural workers, as well as employees of the health and textile sectors, participated in the demonstration to call on President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner to reduce income taxes and improve wages.
“We are demanding what the working class legitimately deserves… We have to convince the government to abandon its arrogance. Mrs. President, you lose nothing by talking to workers and other sectors of our society,” said Hugo Moyano, the head of the CGT, in a speech at the city's main square.'
