Social organizations and unions, such as La Confederación de Trabajadores de la Economía Popular (CTEP) and La Corriente Clasista y Combativa (CCC), have called for a national day of strike and protests on Wednesday, August 28, to demand economic and social reforms, including an increase in the minimum wage.

A demonstration is slated to take place at 13:00 (local time) in Buenos Aires, at the corner of Avenida Belgrano and Avenida 9 de Julio. Protests are also likely in the nearby city of La Plata, as well as in other urban centers nationwide.

Buenos Aires metro staff also announced they would also join the strike, halting all metro service as of 21:00 until the end of the day.

A heightened security presence, commercial disruptions, and associated transportation disruptions are to be expected in the vicinity of any demonstration and throughout Buenos Aires due to the lack of metro service.


Individuals in Argentina are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
