Labour unions and other civil society groups that oppose the current Argentine government of President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner demonstrated together in a mass anti-government protest in the capital Buenos Aires yesterday (10 October). The protest rally was led by the Argentine Workers' Confederation (Confederación de Trabajadores Argentinos: CTA) headed by Pablo Micheli, and the sector of the General Workers' Confederation (Confederación General de Trabajadores: CGT) still headed by Hugo Moyano after a recent internal split (see Argentina: 31July 2012: ). The two labour unions were joined by activists from Proyecto Sur, a leftist-nationalist political movement and party, and members of the Argentine Agrarian Federation (Federación Agraria Argentina: FAA).
