Human rights representatives, legislators and trade unionists held a march in front of the National Congress of Argentina in Buenos Aires on Thursday, as part of a protest “in defense of democracy.” The participants attacked what they see as an apparent clampdown from President Mauricio Macri's administration on the liberty of the judiciary, institutions and the media. "Impartiality was lost, judges are being persecuted, there are ideological persecutions within the judicial power," explained event organizer and former Supreme Court judge, Raul Zaffaroni.
