The protesters blocked the avenue in the center of Buenos Aires. When they began to be dislodged from the roadway, stones and sticks flew in order.

The protesters burned tires and garbage. In response, law enforcement officers used tear gas, water cannons and rubber bullets.

The number of victims is not reported. Several protesters were detained. The protesters demand to abolish the austerity measures and accuse the President of Argentina Mauricio Macri that his policy led to high inflation and the rapid growth of poverty in the country.
