Argentina: Farmers converge on Buenos Aires to decry food prices

Hundreds of Argentine activists and farmers staged an impromptu fruit and vegetable market in front of the President Maurico Macri's official office, the Casa Rosada, in Buenos Aires on Tuesday, in a plea to the government to regulate high prices at supermarkets. The public are forced to pay up to ten times more than what supermarkets import fruit and vegetables for, which farmers believe is due... Еще to the government not regulating other Latin American producers undercutting Argentine farmers' prices. «The farmers' situation in Argentina and in Latin America is very bad, it is serious, in several countries the money stays with the middlemen,» said Mauricio Garzon, who was protesting.
