In Argentina, thousands of unionized workers marched in the capital Buenos Aires on Wednesday to protest austerity imposed by Argentine President Mauricio Macri. This is Hugo Godoy of the State Workers’ Association.
Hugo Godoy: “We are protesting so that the government stops the application of economic and social policies which harm the working people. There is a group of large transnational companies which take all the wealth out of the country by the load, with benefits from the governing policies which harm the workers. Poverty and unemployment have risen. It has become more serious in the last year and a half, since this policy was applied.”
