Peruvian workers ask Alan Garcia not to lie and not to involve Morales in national strike
Lima. 03, July, (ABI).- Mario Huaman, Secretary General of the General Confederation of Peruvian Workers, (CGTP Spanish initials) stated that it was not true that the Bolivian President is the person who is organizing the national strike. Therefore, he asked the President Alan Garcia not to lie and also asked Jorge del Castillo, Chairman of the Minister Council, to show the proofs of those accusations.
Besides that, Huaman pointed out that these accusations were used before to avoid the electoral victory of Ollanta Humalla and now they are used against the working-class of Peru and their demands.
Huaman said to the Peruvian News Paper La Primera that he did not really care about the Government’s announcement to declare this strike, to take place on July 9th ,as illegal.
He added that the Minister of Labour Mario Pasco had followed just a political slogan when he declared this strike as illegal since he had not checked the documents that support this measure within the legality
