Barrionuevo: 'Massa will crush Kirchnerism in 2015 elections'

Head of the Uthgra gastronomic workers union after briefing reporters on the turnout of the April 10 general strike.

Anti-government CGT leader Luis Barrionuevo considered opposition figure Sergio Massa is “working toward a different country” and accused the federal government of “resentment accusations” against the head of the Renewal Front coalition.

“(Sergio) Massa will undoubtfully crush them in the elections,” Barrionuevo told reporters a day after the general strike he launched against the Cristina Fernández de Kirchner administration along with the Secretary General of the CGT Hugo Moyano and CTA’s Pablo Micheli.

According to the Uthgra gastronomic workers’ leader, the government has put Massa under fire because the mayor of the Buenos Aires province locality of Tigre beat Kirchnerism in the 2013 midterm elections.

Barrionuevo compared Sergio Massa with ex president Carlos Menem who run Argentina during the 90’s neoliberal decade. “(Menem) had all MPs and governors against him,” Barrionuevo said, but managed to win the Peronist Party primaries and won the elections in 1989.

Regarding Thursday’s walkout, the union leader urged President Cristina Kirchner to “call” main sectors and players to address unions’ demands. “Over the past three years, the government has not responded to any of the demands of those who do have the chance to speak with the President,” he complaint and pointed out the pickets that blocked main road access to the Buenos Aires City yesterday were led by leftist groups he has “never” had ties with.
