Argentina: Buenos Aires protesters march on Congress in ‘defence of democracy’

Human rights representatives, trade unionists and legislators joined forces in Buenos Aires, Thursday, as part of a protest 'in the defence of democracy' to march on the Argentine Congress. The attendees attacked what they see as an apparent clampdown from President Mauricio Macri's administration on the liberty of the judiciary, institutions and the media. «The impartiality was lost, judges... Еще are being persecuted, there are ideological persecutions within the judicial power,» explained event organiser and former Supreme Court judge Raul Zaffaroni. «We have to defend the law as never before because it is the first time that in these three years [of Macri's administration] so many years of democracy have been seriously threatened.»
