'Let us go to work': posters appeared against pickets and street closures


It is an initiative of the Argentine Anti-Piquetero Movement, in a chaotic day in the City due to the concentrations of social organizations in different points.

"Let us go to work", "Cutting down the street is a crime"


Those were the phrases that appeared written in the middle of the early hours of this Tuesday on posters displayed on different parts of the City of Buenos Aires, in a chaotic day due to the so-called

"national picketing"

carried out by different social organizations.

The initiative was launched by the

Argentine Anti-Piquetero Movement

, led by Buenos Aires legislator Ramiro Marra of La Libertad Avanza and which arose as a protest against the numerous number of cuts in the Federal Capital.

More than 10,000 posters with slogans

against the piqueteros could be seen early in the streets of Buenos Aires.

The posters contained phrases such as "Let us work" and "Cutting the streets is a crime. This year the party is over," signed with the MAPA logo.

In this regard, the libertarian Marra stated: "The piqueteros break the order of the city. We cannot allow it. The Penal Code and the Constitution are very clear,

they have to go to jail

. This is the world turned upside down, those who want to go to they can't work because those who later have to support them with their taxes won't let them".

According to the data that the MAPA was able to collect, during 2022 in Argentina there were 9,778 pickets, with a peak of 966 in July.

30% of them were concentrated in the province of Buenos Aires and in CABA.

The City woke up with posters against the pickets.

Around 9 o'clock, the piquetero movements began to gather at the five access points to the City, where they again protested against the 160,000 suspensions of the

Empowering Work

plans in what they called "national picketing."

The central head of the Piquetera Unit, which brings together different organizations, began to gather in the vicinity of the Darío Santillán and Maximiliano Kosteki (former Avellaneda) station, and mobilized to the Pueyrredón Bridge where they installed themselves in front of a Federal Police cordon. .

The organizers promised a "massive" mobilization, for which the authorities deployed a special operation of security forces.

From early on, they settled in the surroundings of the cuts.

The City woke up with posters against the pickets.

The columns of the Polo Obrero, Barrios de Pie-Libres del Sur, MST Teresa Vive, among others, also made cuts at other points: La Noria Bridge, West Access - RN 7, Pan-American Highway and La Plata-Buenos Aires Highway.

The "national pick-up" generated complications to access the Capital, but also to circulate through Buenos Aires transit.

Near noon, the piqueteros held an assembly to define the duration of the measure.
