Protesters denounced the government of President Alberto Fernández over its handling of debt with the International Monetary Fund that has hampered Argentina’s economy.

Nahuel Orellana: “Fifty percent of the population is below the poverty line, and the rates of severe poverty are increasing more and more. Inflation for food products is at 8%. They have just changed the minister of economy, and nothing has changed.”
