ARGENTINA : Tens Of Thousands Protest President Cristina's Policies.

    TO WATCH: 1:01 Video report

      Anger is building against once popular President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner.
      Powered by social media...many thousands peacefully marched against her policies... aka...'Kirchnerism'...in several cities.
     Cristina has recently put in place new strict currency controls, the unofficial annual inflation rate is roaring along at 25%, new corruption scandals plague her administration, crime is growing...and her allies are lobbying to change the constitution to allow her a 3rd consecutive term...and perhaps longer.
     Her main supporter's proposal to allow 16 year olds to vote also disturbs some.
     She was easily re-elected last year to a 4-year term...with 54% of the vote.
     Her popularity now hovers around 30%.
     She has dismissed protests as whining from the top 2.5% of the population.
