Argentina: National Police Strike Sparks Violence

A nationwide police strike spurred waves of looting in at least 17 of the country’s 23 provinces Dec. 8. At least five people were killed in separate incidents, with hundreds more injured. The violence began after demands for higher pay led to a police walkout in Cordoba province. The Cordoba strike was settled after the governor nearly doubled the police salary, but many provinces, including Chaco, Entre Rios and Jujuy remained without police patrol. Buenos Aires province, most frequented by tourists, has not been affected, as the province’s governor averted the strike by increasing salaries.
