Buenos Aires, December 1 (RHC)-- Thousands of demonstrators marched in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Friday to protest the G-20 Summit.  An organizer of the protest, Juliana Diaz, told reporters: "The G-20 is where the world's most powerful meet to plan the deepening of patriarchal capitalism and to seek new forms of domination." 

According to official data, 25,000 police, coast guard and border patrol officials cordoned off a 12-square-kilometer area, around the riverside Costa Salguero convention center, where the summit is being held. 

The G-20 meeting comes at a tough time for Argentina.  Due to President Mauricio Macri's adjustment policies, the country's gross domestic product (GDP) is forecast to contract by 2.8 percent in 2018 and by 1.9 percent in 2019. 

Despite the projected economic contraction, Argentina's inflation has already reached 40 percent and will continue to skyrocket, which seriously affects 3 out of 10 Argentinians who currently live in poverty.
