The IMF refused the government's loan request, so workers saw their salaries cut by 60%. Citibank and other major banks froze people's bank accounts. Once the poster child of the IMF and World Bank, Argentina found the end of the neoliberal economic rainbow: complete financial ruin. Facing hunger and renewed police repression, over a million people spontaneously took to the streets on Dec 19-20. They banged on pots and pans and chanted "Que Se Vayan Todos!" (They all must go) to transnational corporations, corrupt politicians, and the repressive police forces that support them. Since then, the Argentine people organize weekly Asambleas Populares (popular public assemblies) to make their own economic decisions and continue the Cacerolazos to make their voices heard. An inspiring movement has developed where the popular politics of the future are being re-invented. The people of Argentina are calling for a global day of action to mark their anniversary.
