translated from Spanish: The CGT’s stoppage: postcards of a protest that was felt throughout the country

This Wednesday’s stoppage was «forceful» and «non-political», the leaders of the General Confederation of Labour said in evaluating the scope of the protest.  The truth is that the fifth strike convened by the CGT during the administration of President Mauricio Macri was noticed in the streets, without public transport or attention in the banks and with schools and public agencies closed.

The autonomous CTA of the city of Buenos Aires carried out more than 30 popular pots and an event in the historic headquarters of Avenida Independencia 766 in the neighborhood of San Telmo.

A popular pot mounted by CTA-A together with social organizations.

«Workers across the country stop today to curb the economic policies of the national government and to recover our salaries and our rights. With unemployment and hunger, the country goes towards a catastrophe, «said the secretary General of the CTA-A Capital and referent of ATE Pablo Spataro.
