(Melissa Young & Mark Dworkin, 2018, 41 min, Argentina)
Argentina elected president Macri a year before we elected Trump. The two presidents are quite similar in their election campaigns and the policies they promoted once in office. But Argentines are resilient; they have fought right wing governments before. Their creative resistance to Macri’s policies, from organized labor, worker co-ops, the arts, offers ideas and inspiration for us in the North.

On Jan 24, 2019, furloughed workers from various federal agencies and their supporters rallied in the bitter cold at Chicago's Federal Plaza to end to the government shutdown, then in its 34th day. The next day, Trump suddenly announced he would sign a stop gap measure that did NOT include funding for a wall. Did their action help break Trump’s resolve?
