(en) Argentina: Repression of the SIMECA* grassroots union. 28/09/2005 Statement. [ca]

Date Thu, 29 Sep 2005 12:14:39 +0300


At around 8.00pm, we mobilized for a demonstration outside the Ministry
of Labour to demand recognition of our union, which government authorities
continually deny without any reason other than political. Following our
demonstration we began to disperse towards Avenida de Mayo (and the
intersection with Calle Florida). However, we were attacked by police,
who arrested our comrades Carlos Make, César Besone and Franco Armando.
We denounce the ongoing policy of the government of rejecting the legitimacy
of our organization as a labour organization, and the political repression
of our entirely legitimate demands.

WE ARE CALLING A PRESS CONFERENCE FOR THURSDAY 29 SEPTEMBER AT 12.00 AT OUR
PREMISES IN CALLE VENEZUELA 1225.

SIMECA (Sindicato Independiente de Mensajeros y Cadetes)

with this union.
