Security forces deployed at Panamericana highway to clear Lear picket

A protest at the Panamericana highway against the dismissal of workers from the Lear company halts traffic.

For the second time this week, workers of the Lear auto-parts company blocked the Panamericana highway in the Buenos Aires province locality of General Pacheco. Infantry has been deployed at the area seeking to clear a key access to Argentina’s capital city.

Picketers were blocking this morning the Panamericana highway to protest against a company's decision to stop members of workers’ Internal Committee from entering the Lear building, whose admission had been authorized by Judge Graciela Beatriz Pereira, ordering the “immediate reinstatement” of workers’ to their posts.

In the meantime, Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich reaffirmed the government’s support to the performance of security forces in dealing with social protests – the Cristina Fernández de Kirchner administration has received over the past days strong criticism by pro-government organizations and political figures that questioned the decision to strike down protests.

“It is necessary to define the level of conflicts,” Capitanich told reporters this morning questioning demonstrations that “interrupt traffic.” Some protests, the head of ministers said, seek to “wear out” the federal government.

“The performance by Security Secretary Sergio Berni as well as of (Security) Minister (Cecilia Rodríguez) and the security forces is conducted within he exercise of a protocol to defend citizens’ rights.”
