Argentina Now

 

 In the midst of growing poverty, unemployment, government corruption, and a freeze on bank deposits, thousands of Argentines took to the streets in the final weeks of 2001, an unprecedented public protest which has changed the political landscape of this once prosperous South American country. Since then, the country has been undergoing an often times agonizing process which some have characterized as "the death of Argentina" and others have called "the birth of a new republic." This site contains analysis and personal narratives about the current situation in Argentina by Argentine and international writers, including articles on economy, politics, social change, piqueteros, neighborhood assemblies, worker occupied factories,and globalization.
