At least 109 people have been injured during the protests on Monday in Argentina against the provisional reform of the pension system, as reported by the Emergency Medical Care System (SAME) of Argentina. The disturbances have occurred while Congress processed the provisional reform of the pension system.
Of the wounded, 55 are police officers who had come to the demonstration area called by the unions, as indicated by the SAME.
The local newspaper La Nación has indicated that the protesters have thrown stones and bottles against the police, who have arrested 60 people so far.
The police responded with shots of rubber bullets and tear gas.
Gates inside the Congress, the deputies have initiated the substantive debate of the project after almost five hours of interventions of the opponents, who requested the floor in a special way to demand that the session be adjourned or, at least, be recessed until to end the violence in the streets. The result is expected to lengthen throughout the night of Monday and the vote is expected to take place during the first hours of Tuesday.
The session last Thursday, also called to address the reform, had to be suspended due to violent clashes between the demonstrators and the security forces.
