Protest Repression in Buenos Aires, Argentina!

by Workers Action Tuesday, Dec. 23, 2003 at 11:41 PM

On December 20, at a packed demonstration of 60,000 a bomb went off to stop the commemoration of the Argentine Peoples Rebellion. This bomb injured 23. We urge you to protest this atrocity today by sending an email to the Argentine Embassy and Consulates in the US.

Condemn the Bomb Attack on a Political Demonstration in Argentina

Send Messages to Condemn the Action to Argentine Embassies and Consulates

Workers' Action condemns, in the strongest possible terms, the bombing at a major political demonstration in Buenos Aires, Argentina on 12/20/03. The target was a 60,000 strong protest commemorating the anniversary of the upsurge of 2001, which resulted in the resignation of four consecutive presidents.

23 people were injured, including a pregnant woman and several children. Four were seriously hurt and had to undergo surgery. One victim had burns over 30 percent of his body.

According to various sources, other bombs were discovered that failed to detonate.

It is no secret who bears the political responsibility for this atrocity. It is the Argentine government lead by President Kirchner. Unable to contain the just popular struggle that emerged out of 2001, Kirchner and company have been threatening repression against the people's organizations for months. Saturday's terror attack was the fruit of this. It was an attempt to silence an indomitable mass movement, lead by workers, that threatens the interests of Kirchner's higher ups - the IMF and US imperialism.

But the bloody attempt to intimidate the protestors has silenced nothing. Instead it has sparked more demonstrations to express defiance of the state encouraged violence.

Workers' Action stands with the injured and outraged over this event in Argentina. Given the repression dished out at November's anti-FTAA protests in Miami, we too are learning that the government will stop at nothing to defend the greed of big business. Saturday's bombing is one more extreme example.

We are proud to be in solidarity with our besieged Argentine brothers and sisters. Their fighting example is a model for our battles to come in the US.

Send a Protest to the Embassy of Argentina and its Consulates.

We urge all workers organizations, participants of the anti-FTAA and anti-globalization movements to send protests to the Embassy and Consulates of the Republic of Argentina. The crackdown on democratic rights in Argentina cannot go unchallenged. The "liberal" Kirchner government has been calling for the repression of street demonstrators for months. Now the demonstration marking the power of the people to remove the president two years ago has been bombed. Below are the street addresses, fax numbers and email addresses for the diplomatic offices of Kirchner's government in the United States. Send a copy to the Argentina Solidarity Committee.

Send a Statement of Solidarity with Argentina's Struggle

Send it to Argentina Solidarity Committee and we'll post it on the web here in the U.S. and on Indymedia in Argentina, and forward these to the Polo Obrero and Partido Obrero in Argentina.

For more information check out Argentina Indymedia "Bombing in the Plaza de Mayo" at Workers Action will also post news stories and related material on the Argentina Solidarity Committee listserv at

Send copies of the protests and statements of solidarity to the Argentina Solidarity Committee. We will post the statements of solidarity onto Argentina Indymedia and forward these to the Partido Obrero in Argentina.
