Major national strike in Argentina with pickets to implement the measure

Argentina’s three main organized labour groupings, and in opposition to Argentine president Cristina Fernandez, have called for a national strike on Tuesday which counts with the support of several tens of camp and city organizations plus hundreds of pickets in the main cities ‘to ensure there is no activity’.

CGT leader Hugo Moyano anticipates a very strong, effective strike

The demonstration which is expected to have a huge response comes almost two weeks after 8N when hundreds of thousands of Argentines all over the country took to the streets, convened by the social networks, shocking the administration of President Cristina Fernandez and surprising the rest of the political establishment which never expected such a massive, almost spontaneous turnout.

On Tuesday the pickets, according to the three organizations, will have the duty to ensure the compliance with the national strike and are expected to cause havoc in the transport system and even in domestic flight airports.

The protest is to demand a higher starting income taxing floor and smaller rates for workers’ families; an increase in child and family allowance and making the government cancel the social security debt with the unions, a sum estimated in 2.5bn dollars, according to the latest release from the National Auditing Office.

CTA’s umbrella union leader Pablo Micheli told reporters that “pickets have always existed”, and added, “So I recommend that those who still want to go to work tomorrow, better do it before the roadblocks start.”

“If there’s a national strike, it should be understood as what it is: a strike. So please understand that we can’t just stay at home saying how bad things are going, we have to do something, we have to claim for our rights.”

Likewise, Micheli, who planned the strike along with the CGT Labour Confederation led by Hugo Moyano and will also count with the support of the Blue&White CGT umbrella union headed by Luis Barrionuevo of the Restaurant workers’ union, and the Argentine Agrarian Federation, remembered that there are “many unions that totally agree with our claims but instead their leaders spend their time visiting government’s officials

“Pickets are not a matter of life or death; it’s never happened. We haven’t been involved in acts of violence, at least in strikes we have organized”, added Micheli.

Urban transport allegedly is not joining the strike but trouble is expected, and likewise with the underground very much limited in the area it tours. Air commercial traffic has been suspended.

Teamster boss and head of the dissident CGT, Hugo Moyano forecasted that “tomorrow we are going to see a ‘strong, effective national strike’ against the government and “we hope it is the most effective possible”.

Likewise the leader of the Corriente Clasista y Combativa (CCC) left-wing political group, Juan Carlos Alderete, assured that on Tuesday’s national strike “there will be 160 pickets across the country in response to the government's abuse against workers.“

Likewise, Alderete said that “at least 16 pickets or roadblocks will be held in Greater Buenos Aires suburb areas.”

In conversations with a radio station, the picketer justified the strike, stating that “it hurts to see how the government mistreats and punishes workers and how it lies to us.”

“It hurts to see how the inflation hits on us all. How the health and education systems are deteriorating. So, be aware that tomorrow’s strike is not only because of salary claims but for the most urgent needs.

“The only thing the government has done is permanently disqualify workers and this causes lot of anger within in the labour movement” Alderete said and added: “The labour movement has to be at the service of the workers and neither to a government nor employers”.

“I'm not convinced Moyano is any more credible or laudable than CFK. Their goal should be to get rid of CFK and implement prudent government - not just make demands that will worsen the situation.”

Good point, Idle.
It's actually a bit disappointing.

She really needs to go - she has no solutions...

I fear that it won't happen until there is violent protest.

Will the Peronists try to control and intimidate with gangs of 'Faithful' thugs ??

Privts-Hunter, this sounds tailor-made for a fanatic like you. C'mon, you 100% love CFK, you despise the People, wade in there !!

Oh, oh, I forgot - you have your excuses, you will be more effective typing or shoplifting for the cause - in Canada!!

CFK will be very disappointed in you - she needs every minion right now. :-(

It will take more than a little blood spilt to lever CFK out of power.

Things could turn very nasty on the streets before she relinquishes her position. She certainly will not go willingly, unless there are just so many insurmountable problems that are about to topple her anyway, in which she'll invoke the 'Due to my health and love for my country, I intend to stand down' speech.

More worrying would be who would replace her. As Ozgood has said, wise governance is needed. Will Argentina get it when CFK finally leaves?

It's guaranteed she will go to Venezuala. With the money she has screwed out of Hugo for Argentine IMF debt, she must be one hell of a high class courtesan.

I disagree. What they need is a Maggie Thatcher, who didn't care about being popular, she cared about getting the country out of the financial hole it was in.

She was brutal and dictatorial, but she was also honest and cared more about the country and its people than she did about being popular.

National strike affects transport into the City
Banks closed amid strike
Union leaders say strike 'successful across the country'
Rosario grains int'l port closed due to strike

But there's one that's particularly funny:

CFK calls all workers 'to defend the Kirchnerite political project'

Why funny? She says “This is why I like to call all my fellow-workers to show some conscious and responsibility..............“

Yuo are absolutely right, Idle, we are between a rock and a hard place as our North American friends would say.

If CFK takes it on the lam, we will inherit Amado Boudou, aka The Money Printer.

As far as corruption goes, I think that we're better off with CFK for the moment, it is far better for her to finish her mandate and let the electorate define our next “President”. Unfortunately it will probably be another peronist, Scioli or De la Sota, it would be far better if our electorate decided on Cobos who is very middle of the road, or Binner who is left wing, but not a fanatic!!!!!

On another note, I was at two demonstrations in downtown Vancouver this weekend.

A peaceful Pro-Islam gathering by the Art Gallery, the usual spot for such things. There was also a very small demonstration calling for an end to ”Israeli attacks on Palestine“ and I saw two printed signs demanding ”self-determination” for Palestine.
The Canadian Ministry for Multiculturalism set up a small tent next door, handing out brochures and pins.
All nice and peaceful like.

Perhaps Argentina could use this as an example.

I invite all Argentine to gather in front of UK and Us embassy and light up a Von fire as the the men in benghqzy did last month, help CFK build a better Argentina and stop licking the boots of the english retards who can see an Argentine woman like CFK works harders and has more cojones then all men in Argentia combined, we love you CFK keep up the good work and don't listen to the lazy pot bangers., CFK is the best president Argentina had in 40 years and I invite everyone to dispute that by naming a better candidate for Argentina, but chances are as usual the english will insult me and no even one name will ever be mentioned that 's how I know CFK will stay in power for a lot longer then anyone can predict, pot banging will not build roads, pick up garbage or build a better Argentina, I know what pot banging does, it will bring Argentina back to 2001 situation or like Venezuela 2003, maybe this pot banging Argentine really do deserve someone like menem, galtiery or videla. www.gregpalast.com/the-globalizer-who-came-in-from-the-cold/

Yes, mysteriously disappeared, but those forces are very discerning.

Poppy, PH - ALEX is so lazy - everything come out of the “Boys Big Book of Campora”, but paid La Campora feel he is a liability and ask him not to post.

I think your IRA is safe. :-)

He seems very sensitive about racial slurs towards brown people and got very angry at “Sussie”. I don't blame him.

However, the funny thing is, we the critics of CFK , and “The Trolls”(paid trolls) all think that PH-ALEX and Sussie are alike. Both are ranting nutcases and treated as such.

Any update on the protests? Any idea if they are calling for CFK's head.
Have the 'real' (not ALEX) La Campora shown up ???

@43 Oh ho. Alex the asylum hunter speaks again. Let us take all his shit....sorry, words and commit them to memory. Strange that he doesn't mention which UK and US embassies. Those in Canada so that he can skulk around, perhaps? Yes, he has no cojones, he has no cojones today! But I will take up his challenge. A better president for argieland would be Francisco Franco. I know he's dead, but that makes him perfect. After all, he caused over half a million Spaniards to flee to South America with around 300,000 of them being in argieland.
@47 CFK is counter-productive. And what would argies (wrigglies) know about “work”? More holidays than anywhere else in the world.
@50 At what point in time did you learn anything about “honest people”? I only know of one honest Argentine. He calls himself “Simon68”. There may be others that come on here but are ashamed to mention their nationality. You, of course, are up there with CFK, Tinpotman, PutridJelly, ArguJello, VoodooBoodoo, Florence the Randy glove puppet, Alicia VON Kirchner, Herman the Merman, Julio the Lacking, Carlos the Tomato as totally DISHONEST. We know about their corrupt, thieving ways. How about yours?
@53 Oh look. Alex has got upset. Alex, of course, has forgotten, conveniently, that argieland is racist. It's in their constitution. Is that why he fled to a British-originated nation? Are they the only ones that would take him? Do they know he's there? Do we think he should be careful of using that word “earn”. Wonder if his “employer” knows about his internet use?
@55 Tell us, alex. Why do you wear your hair so long? Can I see mascara and eye-shadow on your pic? Have you tried washing? In a worst case, you could always roll in the snow.
@63 Really? Could you pop over to Toronto and put alex out of his misery?
@64 Watch for the idiot names and comments. That's her.

“I assure you we don’t pay a single penny for PH’s patent infantile drivel. He is beyond the La Campora pale. He can’t even decide if he is bisexual or not.”

And I assure you, Tobias, I believe it. We agree on that, at least.

- personally, I don't think he understands half of what he reads at the Campora Juvenil site he has posted on Facebook.

- besides we know he can't leave Canada, makes excuses, has no idea about travel, and apart from literally wrapping himself in the Argentine flag in photos, he is more Canadian now.
He went to high school in Canada, and lives in Canada - no way is Argentina going to send dollars out of RG for him LOL

However, sexually confused “Sussie” is very much like PH ALEX, but lives in BA. One of yours for sure, though tragically, looks like the 'electro-shock conditioning' failed. :-(

Question for Simon68:

Protests and strikes are becoming more frequent:
September 13, then November 8, then November 27.

It seems likely to me (just from reading the news; never been to South America)
that CFK will last for at most a few more months before she is kicked out. What's your take?

Are there some clear favorites who may become the president if she is brought down?
You mentioned some names above; which ones have better chances?

Studies show that -authoritarianism -can take ppl from a more natural 'middle' of affection/sense expression and push them up up up the Kinsey scale.

IMHO, Noone has to worry about becoming 'faggy', as you said, if they start following their own heart & stop having their lives be driven by the boring lesser good of 'following or rebelling at' some authority.

In nature, (unlike confined, aka -authoritarian- labs) there's no animals with exclusive orientation towards it's own gender, but playfulness & love- universal.

So, CFKC has blasted the unions and the strike. ”“No one is going to pressure me, especially with threats, bullying or thugs. These are not the leaders that Perón and Evita wanted,”. Quite.

It is not ONE person pressuring her to change but millions.

And they are certainly NOT the leaders that Peron wanted. He liked his union leaders well indoctrinated and doing as they were told by him.

The reference to Evita is somewhat desperate, don't you think?

@107 Yes, I noticed the images multiplying as the unrest progresses. She knows that images of Evita will evoke a mawkish reaction from the masses. When she dyes her hair blonde and puts it in a bun we will know she has lost the plot completely.

What she fails to realise is that it is one thing to subsidise football, stand next to pictures of Evita and shout about the mythical Malvinas when people think their lives are improving. But people are genuinely worried about insecurity, their shrinking wages and loss of freedom. They tide has turned and they are not going to listen to her distractions.

The very best thing for Argentina would be that CFK finish her mandate in 2015, but would listen to what the great majority of the populace is asking her: To tackle inflation; to stop her personal vendetta against the independent press; to tackle the increasing insecurity; to speak out against the re-re-election; to stop trying to take over the federal judiciary.

As to who could be a presidential candidate, my personal choice would be Julio Cobos, but I seriously doubt that he would be elected. So the real favourites would probably be the peronists, Scioli (present governor of Buenos Aires Province) or De la Sota (present governor of Córdoba Province) or possibly, if the electorate prefer the left wing, Hermes Binner who for a left winger is probably the right choice as he is not a fanatic and certainly is an honest man!!!!

You may be right in the above comment about what the best thing would be, but it
won't happen as far as I can see. It's more practical to think about likely rather than
desired outcomes. I looked very briefly at some of the names you mentioned.
Cobos seems great, Binner less so. Binner's block voted to support expropriating 51% of
YPF from Repsol:


This is not sound economic thinking. I would have to look into his economic program
and more into his party's voting record (will be hampered by lack of english language sources, but might manage with google translate).
From a very brief glance it seems like the best chance for your country would be to elect UCR. Within UCR, is Cobos the obvious top choice?

Cobos is MY top choice, I would hope that all supporters of the UCR would have that same opinion, but unfortunately I think they will probably select Ricardo Alfonsín as their preffered candidate.

As you say my hopes that CFK remains in office for the whole of her mandate are quite possibly wishful thinking, but the alternative which is either impeaching her, which would not succede, or her resigning would mean putting up with Amado Boudou (investigated for influence peddling and other corrupt practices) as her replacement, IMHO this would be even worse than CFK!!!!
123 Nostrolldamus The 2nd (#) Nov 21st, 2012 - 05:02 pm Report abuse
Cobos was an OK governor, not great, not bad. The problem is his somewhat conciliatory temperament works for Mendoza (where people are far more into compromise and fairness), but does not work in the world of uber-passionate Buenos Aires. To govern there, you need a very strong spine, and also a bit intransigent. He would be a weak president, bullied around by threats because Mendoza unions and businessmen are nowhere nearly as extreme or belligerent as those in the east.

Amado Boudou indeed is hardly attractive:


If CFK is forced out, wouldn't Boudou be kicked out as well? If you look at previous instances of a president forced out of the office before his term expired, was it always that the vice-president got the job?

Does Ricardo Alfonsin have any credentials (a record as a competent politician) other than being the son of Raul Alfonsin? CFK perfectly exemplifies how dangerous is to select a president based solely on family ties.
