After 10 days in Buenos Aires, I have managed to construct my own image of the Argentinian society. A society which is in need of transformation.
It is now approximately one year ago that the Argentinian people demonstrated against the current president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, demanding accountability from the present regime. Bad economic development combined with high corruption halts Argentina’s way back from its recession. The current government is being held responsible for its lack of commitment and additionally the bad reforms that are being implemented.
Focus should be to change its economic line. Concretely, the changes need to be at institutional level. The high spread corruption prevents Argentina capability to tackle its high debt problems, and the bad economic reforms, such as giving the government full access to the central banks savings, is another aspect prevailing Argentina to bounce back from its bad economic situation.
Historically, Argentina has had to fight for democracy. It is during these tough times that the enthusiasm and encouragement by the people needs to gloss and demand more accountability from its government.
One picture, which I took in Plaza de Mayo, really symbolizes the importance of democracy and how it should operate. More votes to the people equals more democracy in the society.
