Public servants, and Subway workers announced a series of rallies and strikes for tomorrow as protesting against Buenos Aires City Mayor Mauricio Macri and the brutal suppression unleashed by the Metropolitan Police against Borda Mental Hospital’s doctors, employees and patients last Friday when trying to evict them from the historical building.

According to a communiqué issued by the Public Clerks’ union (ATE in Spanish), their members will stage a strike tomorrow, and will be joined by the CTA Umbrella union led by Hugo Yaski,

CTA members will be marching from the intersection of 9 de Julio and Avenida de Mayo to the City Legislature

CTA’s Deputy Secretary-General Marcelo Frondizi gave a press conference in which called Mayor Macri “a criminal”, and urged for the business tycoon’s embezzlement.

“Macri wants a city for just a few privileged citizens, and has plans for destructing all public services by suppressing people with his police force”, Frondizi told reporters.

AGTSyP Subway Workers’ union will also join the protests. It’s been reported that workers will open all access gates between 10am and 12pm, thus granting free trips, to then stage a one-hour service (01pm-02pm) strike affecting all six lines.
