Government says Siderar block not a 'rational' protest method

Another protest by teamsters against the Siderar company. In this file photo, unionized workers block the company''s factory unit located in the BA province locality of Haedo.

Jorge Capitanich has condemned the blocking of the Siderar steel company that unionized drivers have been staging for five days now. The federal government rejects blockades as a ‘rational’ protest method, the head of ministers told reporters.

In his daily brief to the press, Capitanich ratified the government’s “condemnation” of a demonstration headed by Truck Drivers Union Deputy Secretary Pablo Moyano – son of union leader Hugo Moyano who launched a general strike by the CGT labour confederation back on April 10 against the Kirchnerite administration -, that has kept the Buenos Aires province factory units of the Siderar company blocked over the past week.

“It is a jurisdictional area of the province of Buenos Aires. I understand that the Buenos Aires province governor (Daniel Scioli) and his Security Minister (Alejandro Granados) are working on the issue; it is also the jurisdiction of provincial justices to face the problem,” the cabinet chief affirmed while addressing the press at the government house this morning.

The Siderar conflict and the government's condemnation of it come a few days after Kirchnerite MPs submitted a bill to regulate street protests and pickets prompting fierce criticism by social, political and human rights organizations.
