Looting in Buenos Aires

Just on my way to a road block. So that short. 

The country is aflame. There have been repeated tear gassings in different 
towns, looting and occupation of public buildings by the population (included 
the Municipality (?) of Córdoba).

The Cámara de Diputados is debating two measures that will strip off Cavallo 
the "superpowers" that he had been granted. Most probably these will be 
elliminated. Cavallo, meanwhile, issues orders to the banks in order that they 
disobey the rulings by different judges.

Interestingly enough, the messages by Cavallo order the banks to refer to the 
"government" in case of conflict. That is, the judiciary is NOT the government.

Not surprisingly, the Executive is debating the possibility of decreeing the 
State of Siege.

Shall see.
