Argentinians Will Hug Congress in Two Hours

In 3 hours, Argentinians will surround congress in an effort to take by “hug”. Why will Argentineans be hugging their congress?

Today lawmakers will address judicial reform. One of the most controversial laws deals with injunctions against the state. This law would exempt the Kirchner government from all corruption charges. Such judicial reform happens in the midst of an investigation that accuses the Kirchner government and allied business leaders of doubling the price of public works and laundering hundreds of millions of dollars via offshore accounts.

The other controversial law is the creation of 3 new cessation courts. This judicial reform threatens to dilute judicial cases that already take years to get resolved by adding more redundant processes.
