Protesters from the Barrios de Pie movement marched through downtown Buenos Aires on Wednesday, to denounce rising prices and the attempts by President Mauricio Macri’s government to cut back on welfare.
In particular, protesters were concerned about rising costs impacting on children’s health and a family's ability to provide.
«Today, a normal family cannot live with what they earn. The... Еще government keeps on raising prices,” said one protester, Erica Lopez. “A standard family doesn’t have the required nutrients to get to the end of the month. So what do they do? They eat flour, noodles, but a child needs vegetables, a balanced diet.»
