Massive Anti-Government Protest Planned in Argentina

Thousands of people are using social networks to mobilize a huge march Thursday night against President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, organizing what they hope will be the country's biggest anti-government protest in more than a decade.

Angered by rising inflation, violent crime and high-profile corruption, and afraid Fernandez will try to hold onto power indefinitely by ending constitutional term limits, the protesters plan to bang pots and march on the iconic obelisk in Argentina's capital. Protests also are planned in plazas nationwide and outside Argentine embassies and consulates around the world.
