Argentine Demonstrations

Posted in Northern Argentina at 1:20 am by Jackson Lee

Argentines are very good at holding public marches. The most famous being the pots and pans demonstration during the economic crises in 2001. The government called for a lock down (state of siege) of Buenos Aires to attempt to control the situation, the public responded by taking to the streets banging pots and pans. It got epic – take a look.

I got a little taste of the power of Argentine demonstrations early Thursday morning with the sound of a marching band, very loud fireworks and voice’s of protest (I’m still not sure what they were marching about). Check out these photos.



Some women across the road were removing some posters, can anyone translate the meaning?
