Argentine Photographers Protest Police Repression

IN PICTURES: On Wednesday photographers gathered in front of Congress to protest repression and to demand the right work freely. 

Massive demonstrations led by union workers and pensioners broke out in Argentina on Dec. 14 to reject Argentina's President Mauricio Macri proposal for pension reform.

On the days leading to Congress' approval, protesters clashed with Argentine security forces that used dogs, rubber coated bullets and water cannons against demonstrators. Among the casualties many journalists reported attacks and injuries.
