Farmers handed out 20,000 kilogrammes of vegetables to retirees outside the National Congress building in Buenos Aires, Wednesday, in a demonstration against the government's pension reform. The action was organised by the Land Workers Union (UTT). Around 100 small producers donated 20 tonnes worth of fresh produce in a show of solidarity with old aged pensioners. Despite resistance to the... Еще reform, the government managed to implement it on December 19.
