Angry demo greets Obama in Argentina

People in Argentina have taken to the streets to protest President Barack Obama’s visit, coinciding with the 40th anniversary of a US-backed military coup that led to seven years of a bloody dictatorship. 

Demonstrators, including human rights groups and leftists, marched in the capital Buenos Aires on Wednesday, expressing their anger at Washington’s support for the 1976 coup. “It’s a march against Obama’s visit; also against the Argentine government, who received him with honors,” said Alejandro Bodart, director of the Workers Socialist Movement.

“The left are mobilizing against Obama because it is a slap in the face that on the 40th anniversary of the coup the head of North American imperialism, which supported the coup at the time, arrives,” he added.
