Argentinians Rise Up Against New President – The Battle Over Milei’s Omnibus Bill

After years of economic problems Argentina entered a new phase of a full-scale economic crisis. “People don’t have enough to eat, wages are low and there is a lot of inflation,” taxi driver Claudio Suárez summed up the current situation. On the way to the general strike he explained the crisis in a nutshell: “What this government did is to devalue our currency. Hence they increased prices, fuel, food, medicine, but not salaries and pensions. So we are worse off. Worse than two months ago when the new president took over, much worse.”
