Argentina: Thousands Protest Austerity Measures on Eve of G20 Summit

HeadlineNov 28, 2018

Thousands of Argentines rallied Tuesday near the site of the G20 summit to protest austerity measures being imposed by the International Monetary Fund—and backed by G20 member nations—in exchange for a $57 billion bailout of the Argentine economy. This is Argentinian activist Gastón Harispe.

Gastón Harispe: “The G20 is hunger and illegitimacy. This illegitimate and starving government launched this summit and comes to play a role of minor partner of this conglomerate of imperial countries that come to divide the world in the framework of the commercial war.”
