Argentina: Lawmakers suspend pension reforms as protester-police clashes turn violent

Argentina’s Congress suspended a debate around national pension reforms in Buenos Aires on Thursday, following violent clashes between protesters and police. Police used tear gas and rubber bullets as thousands of protesters turned up at a rally, which was held outside congress in the capital. The proposed pension reform would change the formula used to calculate retirement payments, using... Еще both inflation and wage index data. The government has succeeded in getting favourable reports from the Social Security and Budget committees, with the Justicialist party yet to declare. The protesting organisations also demonstrated against the WTO summit, which will run until Sunday. Earlier this week, Argentinian President Mauricio Macri ordered the blocking of a number of anti-globalisation activists from entering the country for protests against the World Trade Organisation (WTO) summit due to posts made by potential attendees on social media platforms.
