"Peoples Protest Against A Corrupt Government!!!" Protests Tip by mannymiami

Protests, Buenos Aires: 15 reviews and 17 photos


Here in front of the congress building there are always people and sometimes squatters protesting against the corupt government that is running the country . In my next couple of pictures you will see some protesters with signs and writtings against the government. December 19 2001 the People of Argentina went out into the streets and revolted against the De la Rua and his corupted administration. In a matter of two weeks Argentina went through four presidents. From the steps of this congress building I witness the masses breaking into this building and looting and burning everything inside. It was a very impressive thing to eyewitness. The peso devaluated and this once rich country fell into poverty. Hopefully this country will get back on its feet and once again will be the country that it was once...
