Argentinian protest

Issue No. 1783

SOME 150 people joined a lively and noisy protest outside the London offices of the World Bank last Saturday in solidarity with the uprising in Argentina. Interest payments on the country's $140 billion debt are a key factor behind the crisis gripping Argentina.

Protesters demanded that the debt is cancelled and made sure they got their point across by banging pots and pans, echoing the protests which brought down the government in Argentina just before Christmas.
