8N pots banging in Australia
A group of Argentine expats have anticipated tonight’s march against President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s administration and set a pot-bashing protest in front of the Argentine Consulate in Sydney, Australia.
As tonight’s protest has been described as popular and impulsive to a mere ploy by the opposition, according to opposite ends of the political spectrum, defying chants like “Come on Argentina, we will not keep our mouths shut”, and banners claiming for “freedom of expression and thought”, were heard and seen in Oceania as a small group of expats marched towards Argentina’s diplomatic building to express their disagreement with the national government.
The ubiquitous corruption is one of the main critiques thrown at Fernández de Kirchner’s administration, along with insecurity and growing inflation. In tuned with it, protesters also displayed a a warning banner saying "We are going to trial you” as a clear message.
