Hundreds of protesters rejected the presence of President Javier Milei in Germany and questioned his government plan. With Argentine flags, banners and pots, the activists criticized the main libertarian economic policies. The questions arise within the framework of the extensive tour of Europe carried out by the national leader.

The demonstration took place on Sunday morning, prior to the “working” meeting with the German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz.. The Argentine head of state encountered the second protest against him since his arrival in that country when a group of locals and Argentine residents approached the vicinity of the Chancellery, where the exchange would take place, and deployed their force to express strong critics.
