Thousands of people marched in Buenos Aires on Tuesday, demanding salary increases and more social spending.

Protesters were seen marching with banners and flags to the sound of drumming.

"This is sad, that we have to watch the World Cup and see a lot of people wasting money, and here they are really hungry," said one of the participants, Susana Martinez.

"Today workers are playing another World Cup, a World Cup for genuine work that is for a salary equal to the basic family basket and 82% mobile for retirees," Nahuel Orellana, another protester, added.

The protest was organised by social movement and trade union activists. It started at the intersection of Avenida 9 de Julio and Belgrano in the Montserrat district and continued through the streets of the city to the Ministry of Labor, Employment, and Social Development.
