The City of Buenos Aires, mainly the center of Buenos Aires, is once again a traffic chaos this Wednesday, which is affected by street and avenue closures, within the framework of the marches called by the CGT and other union spaces related to the Government ( to the National Congress) and opposition social and left-wing movements (to Plaza de Mayo) in rejection of the economic situation the country is going through.
