Protesters demonstrate in front of CFK's hotel in NY
Over a hundred protesters demonstrated in front of the hotel where President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner is staying at in New York, holding similar signs to the ones seen at the September 13 pot-banging protest.
The protesters assured that they were not there "for the dollars," referring to the exchange rate controls set by the government, but for the corruption, the re-reelection and the pensioners.
The New York pot-banging protest lasted two hours and had been summoned via social networks.
Fernández de Kirchner was still at the UN headquarters when the protest began in front of the Mandarin Oriental hotel.
"Kirchner, you ruined Argentina", stated one of the signs seen at the protest.
"We don't want another Venezuela," "Freedom of Speech" and "Stop buying media" read other signs at the demonstration.
Meanwhile, the Head of State will offer a speech at Georgetown University in Washington on Wednesday. And there already is great expectations over the speech she will give on Thursday at Harvard University, Boston, as it is said that she will answer some questions afterwards.
