Repression Against Demonstrators in Front of Argentine Congress

In the framework of the debate over the pension reform, Argentine security officials attack protesters who reject the bill.

A group of demonstrators in front of the Argentine Congress was attacked on Monday by security forces.

As part of the protests in rejection of the pension reform pushed by the government, demonstrators gathered outside the Chamber of Deputies in a peaceful way, waiting for the debate to decide on the enactment of the law.

Security forces formed a line with shields to prevent the entry of protesters, but also responded with tear gas.

The Chamber of Deputies is debating the pension reform this Monday, at the insistence of the Government of Mauricio Macri which wants it approved as soon as possible.

Demonstrators from different unions accompanied by leaders of the Argentine opposition have demonstrated in front of the Congress in rejection of the reform that aims to reduce the benefits of retirees.
