A. Pots and Pans


According to World Press Review's Argentinean correspondent: "Thousands marched from Buenos Aires' residential neighborhoods towards the Plaza de Mayo, a central square facing the presidential palace, beating pots, pans, and anything else at hand. 'Down with corruption,' they chanted. 'Supreme Court members resign now!' 'We want our money back!' 'Argentina! Argentina! Argentina!'" Although the demonstrators represented a cross section of Argentine society, many appeared to be middle-class professionals. To express non-partisan anger towards the govenment, pots and pans were used in favor of banners and slogans denouncing individual parties.
