Buenos Aires City’s Security Secretary Marcelo D’Alessandro said union leaders would have to take “responsibility” for any incidents at the march. The police will respond to “violent people”, D’Alessandro told Continental radio.
A MIXED BAG
Moyano will lead the protest after a complex few weeks in which many of his colleagues in the union movement distanced themselves from the historic union boss.
Other union groups participating in the protest today are: Hugo Yasky and Pablo Micheli’s confederation of unions, the CTA (aligned to Cristina Kirchner); teachers unions CTERA, and Suteba led by Roberto Baradel; the ATE public workers union; and Corriente Federal’s Bankers and the private school teachers union SADOP.
Civic, political and human rights groups will also participate. These are: the CTEP, Corriente Clasista y Combativa; Barrios de Pie; Citizens United (the political movement led by Cristina Kirchner) and La Cámpora (the youth movement led by Máximo Kirchner); and left-wing groups including FIT and the group of Mothers of Plaza de Mayo led by Hebe de Bonafini.
The gathering will begin at 12.30 at the intersection of Belgrano and 9 de Julio avenues.
