Term limits. The people want them, and if the signs at the protest rallies are any indication, Argentines are against Corrupcion, oppose Kirchners Reelección, and are for Libertad.
Expatriate Argentines are holding similar clamorous protests around the world. The first to bang at the pans and pots were folks in a Miami, Florida, neighborhood known as Little Buenos Aires. Marchers there expressed sympathy with friends and relatives in the Southern Hemisphere: We are not afraid and We dont want a communist Argentina.
The full story of the protests, which have been going on since June, echo some of the issues and criticisms that were pushed for and charged against both Tea Party and Occupier protests in past years back in U.S.A. Theres talk of secret partisanship, even astro-turf.
But fear of dynastic rule neednt be confined to any party. And it certainly doesnt require any elaborate organization — just the organization that people spontaneously engage in when their interests meet.
Its sunny here in Buenos Aires, and I havent stumbled onto any marches. But, if a traveler can glean a sense of a people during a short stay, what I hear seems to be whats reported in the newspapers: A solid cohort of Argentinas population demands the rule of law, not the rule of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.
