CTA demands 'living wage' on anniversary of 2001 unrest

A march organised today by the Argentine Workers Confederation (CTA) union and various leftists parties finished with a protest in the Plaza de Mayo, as those present remembered the fatal social uprisings of December 19 and 20 and demanded improvements in the minimum wage.

The trade union marked the anniversary of the disturbances, in which 39 people were killed in clashes across the country, by demanding a national minimum living wage of 8000 pesos a month, as well as condemning the promotion of military figure César Milani to lieutenant general.

National lawmaker for the Leftist Workers' Front, Néstor Pitrola, took the opportunity to refer to the police strikes of the past week, stating that such tactics were no surprise to seasoned activists.

"We knew from beforehand that police force which they are only recently discovering, connected with the murders of Carlos Fuentealba, Maximiliano Kosteki and Darío Santillán, and who freed the zone so that they could kill Mariano Ferreyra. Those police get 8500 [pesos a months]," the politician fired.
