Argentina: Citizen Media Coverage of Fuentealba Protests in Neuquen

“Tens of thousands of people marched throughout Argentina on April 9 as part of a general strike called to protest the death of a teacher, Carlos Fuentealba, who died on April 5 in the southwestern province of Neuquen after being shot at close range with a tear gas canister,” writes the World War 4 Report with a nod to the Weekly News Update on the Americas. Mariano Amartino points to Pensamientos Despeinados [ES], where three young men from Neuquen are providing constant coverage of the protests including photographs and video.
