Coronavirus: there were protests in Plaza de Mayo and Tigre against the quarantine

Hundreds of people marched on Monday through the center of the City of Buenos Aires and other parts of the country to call for an end to “social, preventive and compulsory isolation”.

The march in the City began in the Plaza de Mayo and ended in the Obelisk despite the fact that the City Police cut off access to that area with their patrols.

A woman with a poster in her hand asked the government: “Alberto Fernández, the republic does not belong to you. The country is everything. Long live the country.” They all sang: “Liberty, liberty, liberty”.

Iñaki Gutiérrez, a member of Together for Change, denounced on Twitter that the security force would not let him pass to the Plaza de Mayo, despite the fact that crowds or meetings are prohibited. He was finally able to get there.
