Gov't urges City to clear Illia highway

A Buenos Aires City Metropolitan police agent arrives in the Illia highway were shanty town residents stage a protest in demand for housing programs

Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich and Security Secretary Sergio Berni have urged the Buenos Aires City government to clear the Illia highway that has remained blocked over the past days due to a protest by residents of the Villa 31 shanty town. There is an “absolute ineffectiveness” by the administration of Mayor Mauricio Macri, Berni affirmed.

In a press conference held today at the government house, the officials said the City government had agreed to settle the protest on December 30.

Inhabitants of the Villa 31 urban settlement were stopping traffic at the Illia freeway –a key road that connects the Northern area of Buenos Aires province with Argentina’s capital- for the eighth day today in demand for housing solutions.
