Thousands of people marched in Buenos Aires on Thursday as part of a national strike against job insecurity and the government's labour policies.
The strike was convened by the Association of State Workers (ATE) union. Protesters convened in front of the Buenos Aires Obelisk and marched towards the Ministry of Modernization.
ATE Secretary General Hugo Godoy denounced Argentine President... Еще Mauricio Macri's fiscal pact, signed in November, as a ploy to enrich international companies at the expense of Argentine workers.
According to local media, ATE reported that since December 30 there have been about 1,500 contract terminations in public offices in the field of human rights, press, gender equality, health and education, among others.
