Argentina: Thousands protest against Macri's proposed tax reforms in Buenos Aires

Thousands took to the streets of Buenos Aires on Monday, to protest Argentine President Mauricio Macri's announcement to implement new labour, tax and pension reforms. The protest comes following a press conference where Macri announced his plan of reforms before businessmen, trade unionists and government and opposition governors. With the slogan «We want to know what it is about,» the... Еще protesters were met with a large-scale security operation, with over 400 police officers deployed. Social organisations and such as the Confederation of Workers of the Popular Economy (CTEP) and Barios de Pie had called for the anti-reform protest starting from the city's famous Obelisk until the front door of the Kirchner Cultural Center (CCK), where Marci had held his press conference. Macri's coalition, 'Cambiemos' (Let's Change), swept the five most popular areas in mid-term elections on October 23, securing a stronger mandate to pass his reforms.
