Freedom of Speech
"(Presidente) Kirshner pays, the Yankees and the IMF party"
Argentina came out of a military dictatorship in the 80s, a time known as the Dirty War meant that "outspoken" citizens went missing, to the tune of 30,000 argentines.
Current Democratic Argentina proudly expresses its thoughts through endless amounts of protests, heated arguments, activism, and a huge aray of grafitti that expresses the thoughts of the people. An complex history that has led to a passionate people.
This particular graffiti refers to the huge debt that Argentina owed the IMF (US)that was paid off by the previous president.
I am learning so much surrounding global economics and the direct effect that our economy has on the majority world... many developing thoughts.
