Argentinean workers carried out a strong general strike on May 29.

By CSP-Conlutas Media Workgroup

Public transport, schools, universities and banks did not work.
Main roads were blocked and no flights were operated in the airports.
Called by the main labor federations, the workers demand increase in wages to meet 55% inflation standards.
They also protest against unemployment, which is on the rise.
That is the 5th general strike against president Mauricio Macri administration.
The economy is on recession since 2018 when President Macri signed an agreement with the IMF to get US$ 56 billion in loans in exchange for strong austerity policies.
CSP-Conlutas stands in solidarity with the Argentinean workers in their struggle for wages and jobs.
