Thousands of protesters took to the streets of Buenos Aires on Wednesday, outraged by poverty levels and demanding the government to declare the state of ‘food emergency’ and a four-year extension of the ‘Social Emergency’.

The demonstrators, led by social organisations such as Barrios de Pie (Neighbourhoods stand up) and the Confederation of Workers of the Popular Economy (CTEP), were seen marching on the 9th July Avenue, carrying banners and signs. Police were also seen watching the demonstration.

Protesters also distributed meal among those attending the event.

Argentina is currently facing the highest accumulated inflation since 1991 and basic food products are the ones hit the most by rising prices.
