A week ago thousands of Argentine truck drivers flooded the streets of Buenos Aires to protest the economic policies of President Mauricio Macri.
Since taking office in 2015, Macri has worked to reduce the country's fiscal deficit by gradually cutting government subsidies. Although Macri's policies haven't been welcomed by a huge percentage of people, some say they are helping dig Argentina out of a long economic crisis. The demonstrations are seen as a test of the president's ability to continue to push for reforms. Union leaders have vowed that if Macri moves ahead with his policies they may call a trucking strike next month.

China's presidential term limits
#XiJinPing, #XiForever, #EmporerXi
Chinese President XI Jinping’s term in office is set to end in 2022 - or is it? The ruling Communist Party is proposing scrapping presidential term limits. The move would allow Xi Jingping to stay in power indefinitely.
Xi’s supporters say the change is needed to provide stability and so that Xi can fulfil his ambition to lead China into a national renaissance and new era of modernity. But critics believe the move would reverse decades of efforts to make China more transparent about its balance of power.
