The demonstrators, who were gathering under the slogan “bread, roof and work, break the debt agreement”, were intercepted and forced to retreat. A series of confrontations ensued, in which one protester was injured.
The background of one of the groups that shined at the event was the storming of the public building in October 2021, when it caused damage to the interior and injured two employees.
As I mentioned to Clarion Official sources confirmed that those who protested did not comply with the agreement, which provided for the release of traffic as soon as the authorities received them. When the meeting had already begun, a decision was made to drive them out with motorized troops and a tap truck.
Then they headed toward Istiklal Street, in what appeared to be a retreat. But moments later they regrouped to continue the protest, as traffic turned into chaos.
The clash between the two parties began around 4:00 pm and lasted only ten minutes, when the police cordon with shields and batons began tactics to respond to the protesters.
Pushing and exchanging assaults increased tension at the time, although the most powerful focus was on the structure of the metrobus, a goal that the security forces prepared to release more quickly.

At 5:00 PM, with traffic cleared, they continued to protest but on the sidewalk on July 9, Mexico. Meanwhile, the woman affected by the gases thrown by the police was loaded onto an ambulance.

At 6:30 pm, social organizations, after meeting with social development officials, who were not satisfied with them, announced that They will camp in the artery of Buenos Aires and meet again on Thursday In the morning with the members of the Ministry.
From the city government, they tried to dissuade the initiative.
Explaining the reasons for the mobilization, Tellam Agency, Patricio Minke, of Polo Obrero Tendencia stated: “We have acted today with the main claim that there is no work. There are unemployed here on July 9th demanding work and income by enabling work.”
He added: “Yesterday (Tuesday) there was also a very large crowd with the same demands and the response, yesterday and today, was the same not to receive organizations or give any response, with the aggravating circumstances that are today. In addition, there was a complete crackdown that did not allow us approaching.”
Polo Obrero Tendencia is a breakaway from the movement of the same name but which no longer belongs to Partido Obrero but to Politica Obrera, led by Jorge Altamira and Marcelo Ramal.
The POT member commented that they had received in response that “there will be no income, there will be no new support for the unemployed, and that all those currently receiving Empower Work must take into account work in various businesses and tasks, for 16,000 pesos Without ART, social work, or job stability.”
Meanwhile, he criticized the joint police operation of the city and the federal police as well as the “implementation of the IMF plan”.

Peketeros indicated that the intention is to wait there until the new meeting with officials agreed at 9 am this Thursday.
