'Strikers' threats could be considered common crime,' Aníbal Fernández
Senator Aníbal Fernández came on stage to bash tomorrow’s national strike and considered that threats made by farmers, who are planning to set roadblocks nationwide, "should be reported to justice as they could be considered as a common crime."
“May be a report should be filed due to the level of the threats made by those planning to set roadblocks”, Fernández said in clear reference to the statements made by Agrarian Federation’s head Eduardo Buzzi indicating that “farmers will set roadblocks just like we did back in 2008 [when the grains export tax triggered a crisis that put the government of Fernández de Kirchner at risk”
On the verge of the national strike called by CGT Labour Confederation boss Hugo Moyano and CTA’s umbrella union head Pablo Micheli, the former Cabinet Chief insisted that “Tomorrow should be a normal day”, Senator Fernández insisted.”
Furthermore, the official remarked that “there will be no problems with the public transportation system as no one is going to block them as it would be barbarian.”
