Argentina experienced a new day of demonstrations this Sunday in various parts of the country, where hundreds of citizens protested against the recent decisions of the Government of Alberto Fernandez.
The withdrawal of funds from the city of Buenos Aires -of the opposition government- to transfer them to the province of Buenos Aires -whose Executive is official-, as well as the judicial reform that Fernández intends to carry out and the prolongation of mobility restrictions by the coronavirus pandemic, who are about to turn six months, were the main slogans of the protesters.
They take to the streets
The highest concentration took place in Buenos Aires, where Argentines summoned each other through social networks and opposed to the Government, of which she is vice president Cristina Fernandez, president between 2007 and 2015, they went to the Buenos Aires Obelisk with light blue and white flags that waved during the afternoon.
Among the rest of the cities where this new “flag” was also noticed, were Mar del Plata (province of Buenos Aires), Rosario (Santa Fe, east center) and Tucumán (north).
The number of protesters was less than that of a few weeks ago, when thousands marched both on foot and in their cars, and there was even representation from various referents opponents.
Macri criticizes Fernández
For his part, the former Argentine president Mauricio Macri (2015-2019) said that the decisions of the current president, the Peronist Alberto Fernández, represent a “systematic and permanent attack” on the Argentine Constitution.
“The Government attacks the ethical and economic bases of a society that aspires to be free, “said Macri in a letter published by the newspaper La Nación.
The head of Government of the city of Buenos Aires, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, from Macri’s party, announced this week that he will appeal to the Argentine Supreme Court Fernández’s decision to withdraw funds from the capital to resolve a police pay dispute of the province of Buenos Aires.
