A day after the general strike launched by anti-government unions, Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich said it was “difficult to evaluate the impacts” of a protest action that rather than a walkout was a “corporate lockout.”

In his daily brief to the press at the government house, the head of ministers was queried about yesterday’s strike led by the anti-kirchnerite splinters of the CGT and the CTA.

According to Capitanich, “many of the protest leaders” who now criticize the national government – mainly teamsters head Hugo Moyano (CGT) who supported the re-election of President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner in 2011 and was a close ally of late Néstor Kirchner -, “benefited” from the development and social inclusion policies carried out by the Kirchnerite administration over the past decade.

Like Capitanich, other government ministers and officials have publicly considered Thursday’s walkout had a “political” nature and accused leader of the Renewal Front opposition coalition Sergio Massa of fueling the strike.

More than 1 million workers joined yesterday’s strike across the country while left-wing political organizations blocked main road access to the City of Buenos Aires.
