Street vendors removed by City Gov't in Once raid

Around 700 garbage bags full of clothing, trainers, toys and other products were seized today by the Metropolitan Police on the outskirts of Once station, Buenos Aires, in a surprise dawn raid that led to one person being arrested.

To end unauthorised business in the area, the administration of City Mayor Mauricio Macri this morning sent around 250 agents in 40 vehicles, in a surprise operation.

Officials and inspectors took away from the scene 700 bags in 13 trucks, seizing goods for which sellers had not paid duties, a complaint registered by authorised businesses in the neighbourhood.

One person tried to resist the forced removals and, according to police sources, attacked officials and set a waste container on fire, leading to his arrest.

The pavements of the City avenue Pueyrredón, between Rivadavia and Corrientes, were once again clear, after unofficial vendors began in recent years to install their own points of sale. The growth of such posts had continued and made traversing the area almost impossible.
