The night already took control of everything, and the shouts and shots that once in a while the wind brings extinguish with each drop of rain. Today will pass into history as the first time that the Argentine masses threw out a president who arrived at the government by means of the ballot boxes. What began as a big wave of hunger sackings and derived, after the declaration of the state of siege, in a spontaneous rise of the middle-class and ample sectors of workers, gave by earth the government. Throughout the day confrontations took place in the center of the Federal capital, and in Mar del Plata, Córdoba, Río Negro, Neuquén, Chubut y Mendoza, according to the last information. The number of dead rose to 26, five of them in the repression in Plaza de Mayo and the number of wounded rose into the hundreds. After noon, a column headed by the Madres de la Plaza de Mayo tried to enter a plaza where spontaneous demonstrators struggled with the police. In spite of the repression, from the rubber bullets, the armored cars and the mounted police, hundreds of people arrived to join the protest. From the buildings people threw all type of things at the police. The demonstrators advanced, threw stones and withdrew to regroup. In the corridors of the power President De la Rua's imminent resignation was being discussed, but the police continued loading. They called for a common government in with the PJ. No one wanted to know anything. There were thousands of us, and we advanced towards the Obelisco. Again they moved to enter, to advance, to back down facing the mounted police. Hundreds of youths in the first line braved the gases and rubber bullets and held out as long as necessary to regroup. The bonfires die down a little, growing more smokey, and the surrounding businesses begin to lose their furniture so that the street continues burning.
