The column of the Meat Workers’ Trade Union Federation stood out for its enthusiasm, organization, and the noise it made at the Wednesday, January 24 demonstration against the government of Javier Milei.

Alberto “Beto” Fantini and Carlos Molinares, respectively general secretary and organization secretary of our affiliate, led the group of protesters who set off from the Federation’s national headquarters at Hipólito Yrigoyen and Chacabuco streets, in downtown Buenos Aires.

The Nation Is Not for Sale” was the war chant that denounced the aspirations of a president who, as the Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano would say, promotes “the sale of a country with an ocean view” and champions a robber capitalism.
