IMF in Argentina in the context of the G20 agenda this year means several damages for the workers’ rights while transnational corporations strength their power over states and people
TA Autónoma along with civil and social organizations demonstrated last Saturday 21th July to express their rejection to the presence of Christine Lagarde and the IMF in Argentina as part of the G20 agenda.
Under the slogan “IMF Never Again”, a wide group of organizations gathered near the Center of Conventions of Buenos Aires, where the meeting with IMF was held, to express their reject to the stand by agreement with the IMF asked by the argentine government last month, as well as to condemn the subjection of the country to the austerity policies demanded by the international credit organizations.
The presence of the IMF in Argentina in the context of the G20 agenda this year means several damages for the workers’ rights while transnational corporations strength their power over states and people.
This ratifies our role as a peripheral country in the international working division. A model based on the economic adjustment by precarization, workers dismissals and cut of rights.
This is why different union, civil and social organizations got together and marched on the streets to shout out loud that the working class will not remain still while big corporations in alliance with governments seek for increase their profits at the expense of workers living conditions and indebting the people. Corporate greed and external debt can’t run our lives. ¡We will defend our sovereignty, rights and jobs!
