Riot Police Attack Public Workers Protest in Argentina

Buenos Aires, January 8 (RHC-teleSUR) -- Police officers in Argentina violently attacked public workers while they were protesting in La Plata City, capital of the Province of Buenos Aires.

The workers were demonstrating after the newly elected right-wing President Mauricio Macri fired them from their jobs in a mass-dismissal of public sector workers. 

Social media reports that people were shot repeatedly with rubber bullets and that riot police used tear gas in order to disperse protesters.
