Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Huge Crowds Protest Meat Export Restrictions in Argentina” – below is their description.
Hundreds of farmers and cattle ranchers gathered in San Nicolás on Friday, at the heart of the Argentine Pampas, to protest against meat export restrictions and various other government measures.
Demonstrators arrived in trucks, horses and tractors at a highway-side lot about 239 km from Buenos Aires.
At the heart of the conflict is the restriction on meat exports imposed by the Alberto Fernández government last month in order to increase domestic supply and thus depress prices.
According to the Agricultural Foundation for Development of Argentina, the country loses about USD 100 million per month with the restrictions.
The protesters also complained about the lack of in-person classes during the lockdowns, the pension plans, alleged corruption, and manipulation of the justice system.
Opposition leaders joined the anti-government demonstration.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
