Far-Right Argentine President Javier Milei Announces Plans to Crack Down on Protests

HeadlineDec 18, 2023

In Argentina, human rights advocates warn of a looming crackdown by the government of far-right President Javier Milei to suppress anticipated protests in response to Milei’s economic reforms and the drastic devaluation of the Argentinian currency. The plan targets the blockade of roads and major highways, while Milei’s security minister said last week protesters would be surveilled with “video, digital or manual means.” The move was condemned by leaders across Latin America. This is Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador: “Don’t fall into any provocation. Nonviolence and civil peaceful resistance are politically effective. Don’t expose yourself to danger. Avoid harassment. But that does not mean not protesting.”
