Anti-Nuclear Actions Face Repression in Argentina
Yesterday police arrested 30 [es] [en] activists with Greenpeace Argentina outside the national congress in Buenos Aires. The activists were protesting actions by the government which is trying to alter the constitution to allow for the importing of nuclear waste.

Police attacked activists from the neighborhood asambleas, piqueteros, and student groups who had gathered outside the police station in solidarity with the arrested activists [en] and to demand their release. Hitting the crowd with batons and firing rubber bullets in to the crowd at close range, the police tried to disperse the crowd. Three indymedia activists were injured in the attack.

Although all the greenpeace activists have been released [es] [en] this attack on the peaceful jail solidarity protest marks a scary increase in the violent repression of activists in argentina.
