The Chamber of Deputies will begin this Wednesday the debate on the Omnibus Law project sent by the government of Javier Milei. Starting at noon, picketers, left-wing parties, social organizations, environmental, cultural and retiree groups, among others, will mobilize in Congress to pressure legislators to reject the initiative.
“Let us be thousands in the streets to repudiate the Omnibus Law and the Milei plan,” was the call of the Workers' Party. Initially, the assemblies had voted to march this Tuesday, when the session was expected to take place, but when the Lower House moved the date to Wednesday, the rally was also modified.

The organizations want the deputies to feel the pressure to stop the progress of the ruling party's project in Deputies, for which the Government hopes to have half a sanction this Thursday.
“Let us show in the streets our repudiation of this package of laws against working people,” said Buenos Aires deputy Gabriel Solano. In coincidence, Néstor Pitrola said that “the fiscal package fell, but the entire omnibus law must be reversed.”
And he added: “We are going for the fall of the entire Omnibus Law, for the annulment of the DNU and the repressive protocol. The labor movement, the picketers, the cacerolas, the popular assemblies and culture can do it.”
Without the CGT, the two CTA and ATE mobilize multisectoral
Last week's strike was called by the CGT, which was joined by the Autonomous CTA and the Workers and ATE, as well as left-wing political parties and those that make up Unión por la Patria, among other sectors, but for this Wednesday They did not join organically and a mobilization of less impact and with less organization is expected.
Although the Polo Obrero and the picketing organizations will march to Congress, the conveners also foresee a spontaneous participation of multisectoral groups that represent sectors affected by the Omnibus Law and the Milei mega DNU.
For example, in a multi-sector meeting that was held at the INCAA, participation in the mobilization towards Congress was organized.

“We have to be thousands again, because we cannot trust the parliamentary thread, the strength is in the streets, that is why we continue to demand the general strike and the fight plan. We have to surround Congress so that no vote is taken, we will be there from first thing in the morning at 12 noon until the session lasts,” Fierro assured.
In addition to what happens in Congress, the organizers hope that the demonstration will be replicated in different parts of the country, as happened with the mobilization that accompanied the CGT strike.
