Uruguayan retirees and pensioners march for rights

Montevideo, Nov 10 (Prensa Latina) Uruguayan retirees and pensioners on Thursday march in Montevideo demanding better living conditions.

It is a mobilization of the National Organization of Retirees and Pensioners from Uruguay (ONAJPU), which will first gather in the capital’s Fabini Square and from there to the Executive Tower in the central Plaza de la Independencia, where President Luis Lacalle Pou is in office.

The protest is in demand for “the loss of quality of life and purchasing power,” Estela Obelar, a leader of the organization, said.

“We have been losing the quality of life; we have been losing purchasing power since the increases granted in 2021 and 2022 were below the consumer price index,” said Obelar, who added that the cut in income is around four percent.

They are among the demands of those who, from the Social Security, resent services that they consider today diminished, such as the care system and some medical examinations.

The demands include care system and some medical examinations, considered diminished by those who needs these servicies.
