Argentina: IMF loan request enrages protesters

Thousands protested in Buenos Aires on Thursday against a possible International Monetary Fund (IMF) bailout. Protesters marched holding banners reading «IMF out», «enough of cuts and tariffs» or «no agreement with the IMF». Some of them also burned a flag of the United States amid cheers and loud applause. President Mauricio Macri's decision to request $30 billion (€25 billion) from the IMF... Еще, to shore up the tumbling national currency has come under harsh criticism. The measures, designed to boost market confidence, have sparked fears of a repeat of the devastating financial crisis in 2001, what Argentineans call the 'corralito'.
