In Argentina, workers shut down the capital city Buenos Aires Thursday in a 24-hour general strike protesting government job cuts and the policies of President Mauricio Macri. The strike came as Macri welcomed the World Economic Forum on Latin America to Buenos Aires. This is Argentine opposition lawmaker Alejandro Bodart.
Alejandro Bodart: “President Macri will open the World Economic Forum, and economists from around the world will come. They are all neoliberals. There will also be business leaders, who will discuss how to continue stealing the riches of our people, how to continue with plans to exclude one sector of society so as to enrich the same old ones.”
