General and national strike: announced as light, but already with hurted people
End of the alert: all access routes have been cleaned of subversive elements, there are wounded and arrested, but so far unfortunately no dead ...
Most of the union leaders were always more on the side of the oligarchy than on the side of the people they pretend to represent, the side of the workers.
That is nothing new and nothing particular of Argentina.
Regularly receiving some bribe, seeing the assignments of charges in the state to sons, daughters and nephews and nieces, it took almost a year and a half to announce a strike light, already under strong pressure from their union bases.
Agreed and arranged with the regime, the idea behind a light strike was, to give a holiday,ore to the common people, who, as the representatives of the regime and the leaders of the unions thought unanimously, would be welcomed by the workers with great enthusiasm and would contribute to calm the tense situation:
No meetings or marches were planned for this national strike day on April 6, 2017.
The Regime and the media obedient to the regime didn't get tired to call for breaking the strike: workers should use bicycles and their particular cars etc. in order to be able to get to their workplaces in some way.
Collecting parking taxes in the federal capital was suspended for the day of the strike.
However, it seems that they again miscalculated the Argentine national soul, or might be, the economic politics of the regime, which has led and leads many people to poverty, brought and brings mass layoffs, pension cuts and salary reducing, increases of prices for energy and water up to 6000 (six thousand) %, finally arrived to the brains of the people:
Already at dawn the roads and highways feeder of the Federal Capital were blocked by demonstrators.
The regime sent ferocious dogs, horses, water cannons, tanks, many gendarmes and a lot strong, brave heavily armed policemen, to war against the protestants.
At 11 o'clock the end of the alert could be communicated: all access routes have been cleared of subversive elements, said a police spokesman.
Banks, gas stations, national and international airports, many shops and businesses are closed bevause of strike. Taxis, subways and buses don't work, hospitals attend emergencies only.
