Argentina protests International Monetary Fund

Social movements, political parties, and unions have marched to protest against the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

IMF executives arrived in Buenos Aires on Wednesday to review the country's public accounts to renegotiate the external debt with President Alberto Fernandez.

"We support the negotiations with the warning that we are not willing to pay the debt with hunger and unemployment", the Union of Workers of the Popular Economy (UTEP) President Esteban Castro said.

Castro said that the IMF is responsible for Argentina's huge foreign debt because it lent former president Mauricio Macri "amounts he won’t be able to pay back“ at a time when there was no production.

The marches have been promoted by the General Confederation of Labor (CGT), the Autonomous Central of Argentinean Workers (CTA), the National Federation of University Professors (Conadu), the Communist Party, and the Territorial Liberation Movement (MTL).
