A previous Demonstration by Teachers in Buenos Aires against the Macri Government Teachers in Buenos Aires have been on strike for the last two days against new laws being brought in by the city's government The teachers are striking against plans by the right wing mayor - property tycoon Mauricio Macri to change the law so that instead of teachers being appointed by school boards, they will be appointed by the government. The teachers see this as part of the overall efforts of the government to privatise education and run down free democratic education in Argentina. Teachers and students in Buenos Aires have been in dispute with the Macri regime ever since he came to power in 2007. They have been fighting cuts in the education budgets which have left schools in need of repair and supported students who occupied their schools to demand new buildings and repairs. This latest round of the struggle is supported by the overwhelming majority of teachers who are determined to protect free education from the right wing state government.
