Protesters in Argentina Take to Streets to Reject Tightened Covid Measures [Video]

Protesters took to the streets in Buenos Aires on Saturday to demonstrate against the government’s tightened measures against Covid-19.

Many of the protests were dominated by the waving of national flags, banners mocking and criticising the president and key officials and a considerable amount of anger with the decision to shutter schools in the Buenos Aires metropolitan area.

President Alberto Fernández announced new restrictions for the Buenos Aires metropolitan area (AMBA) – where 15 million of Argentina’s 45 million inhabitants live – last Wednesday, extending a nighttime curfew and shuttering schools for the next two weeks, among other measures.
