BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:45 A.M.) – Thousands of Argentinians attended an anti-government march on the streets of Buenos Aires on Friday.

The protest was also held on the 41st anniversary of the former and brutal dictator, Rafael Videla, rise to power following a coup.

The coup and subsequent dictatorship were heavily supported by the infamous U.S. Plan Condor. Thousands were forcibly disappeared and killed by the state.

Plan Condor was a US-run anti-Soviet program in South America that saw political repression and state terror by the right-wing dictatorships.

The current right-wing government of Argentina has introduced irresponsible economic policies that has seen inflation far surpass liveable wages.
