Thousands fill the streets of Buenos Aires, banging pots and pans in a traditional protest against President Christina Fernandez.
Activists say they're protesting high inflation rates, urban crime and recent restrictions on foreign currency exchanges.
Protesters are angry over perceived state corruption.
This man says that the group is protesting the deterioration of state institutions, lack of independence and failing economic policy.
The protest comes as the Argentine economy slows down after almost a decade of solid growth.
Mass protests against the economic policies of former President Fernando de la Rua led to the collapse of his government in 2001.
