Argentina: Residents of Buenos Aires are planning to stage a demonstration in the central part of the city on the evening of 7 June 2012 to protest the stagnating national economy and the rising cost of living. During the “cacerolazo” — or noise protest — participants will bang on pots and pans as they march through the area. This is the second such demonstration in just over a week. The demonstrations were organized via social media.
The Argentine economy is showing signs of a slowdown. Although the situation is not yet comparable to the 2001 economic crisis, residents and some union groups have been increasingly vocal about their economic concerns. Farmers in several areas of rural Argentina are currently engaged in a week-long strike to protest rising taxes and declining economic competitiveness in the sector. Additional protests related to economic developments are probable in the coming weeks and months.
