Argentines protest over a tax bill while it is discussed in Congress

Protesters converged on downtown Buenos Aires on Monday as Argentina’s lower house began to debate a dramatically downsized version of President Javier Milei’s economic overhaul bill. In his drive to reach zero deficit, Milei is slashing spending across Argentina — shuttering ministries, defunding cultural centers, laying off state workers and cutting subsidies. Monday’s protest comes days after hundreds of thousands of Argentines demanded increased funding for the country’s public universities, in an outpouring of anger at Milei’s harsh austerity measures.
