Argentina, Americas

Argentine protesters braved the rain in Buenos Aires on July 14 to protest increased utility rates, which have risen by as much as 1,000 percent in some areas. The protests come within President Mauricio Macri’s first year in office, during which Argentines have experienced continued economic instability. The sign shown says, “No to the tarifazo,” a term used in Argentina based on the Spanish word tarifa that is modified to suggest an exaggerated rate. That phrase is followed by, “Macri, national shame!!!”
