Argentines stage massive demonstrations

AP, BUENOS AIRES

In a speech on Thursday, Fernandez did not directly refer to the protest, but she defended policies that she said helped rescue Argentina from its worst economic crisis a decade ago and buoyed it during the 2009 world financial downturn.

“During boom times it’s easy to run a country, but try running [one] when it’s crumbling down,” Fernandez said, urging Argentines to continue to support her and pledging never to give up as her late husband taught her.

“Never let go, not even in the worst moments,” she said. “Because it’s in the worst moments when the true colors of a leader of a country come out.”
