Argentina: Thousands strike against austerity in Buenos Aires

Thousands of protesters from various workers' unions took the streets in Buenos Aires on Monday, in protest over Argentine President Mauricio Macri's austerity measures. Demonstrators waved flags and held banners against International Monetary Fund (IMF). One protester stated that the IMF is managing the country’s economy. «This has to be the beginning of a plan of struggle, we have to... Еще mobilise every day until this government falls,» he added. Opposition groups argue that Macri's emergency $50 billion (€42.75) rescue package from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will harm ordinary citizens. The deal faced a backlash from those who view the international organisation as responsible for the country's financial collapse 17 years ago.
