With fewer police on the streets due to strike action, shop-fronts are smashed and looters carry off stolen goods in Argentina.

Seven people have been killed in northern Argentina amid widespread looting sparked by a police strike over pay.

Four people, including a police officer, have been reported dead in the province of Chaco, with three other fatalities in the provinces of Jujuy and Tucuman.

This leaves the number of dead from the violence at nine.

Riots and looting first erupted last week in the northern city of Cordoba when police went on strike to demand better wages and working conditions.





The strikes have since spread to about 10 provinces. With fewer police on the streets, violence has erupted in at least 19 of Argentina's 23 provinces.

Shop-fronts have been smashed and mobs have been seen carrying off stolen goods in their arms and shopping trolleys.

President Cristina Fernandez's cabinet chief, Jorge Capitanich, described the crimes as premeditated acts by groups that wanted to create chaos ahead of the 30th anniversary of Argentina's return to democracy.

"We are dismayed by events of this nature that aim to worry the people of the provinces of Argentina due to deliberate and planned actions by groups looking to create chaos and anxiety," he said.

Provincial police forces are working to stop the looting, without the assistance of the 60,000-strong federal police. Hundreds of people have been injured and dozens more arrested.

I know someone in Argentina who says there's more chaos than usual. Things haven't been exactly stable there for a long time, but are getting a lot worse.

All these sign's all over the world and a feeling that something huge is about to happen. I wish I could work out exactly what it is.

Peace, love, harmony and wisdom friend :)

this thread is making a point that you should have your stores and "preps" in place long BEFORE TSHTF, and STAY AWAY from any looting , it wont do you or your family or group any good at all if you are seriously injured(or killed) in a mob situation-will it???

More and more happening all over the world, Italy, Singapore, Thailand, Ukraine, let alone the undeclared War Zones in the Middle East... and the just below the surface stuff in places like Bahraine.

The French won't take much to go off on one, neither will the Spanish... the Brazilians have had enough to.

Been wondering for a long time how long before scenes like this happen in UK, it's not a matter of if, but a matter of when.

The Duggan case has just retired for deliberation.... you know, that one that was the spark for the riots the other year when the police executed the lad and planted a gun... yes he was a bad un, no doubt about that one, but this was another stupid move by the police, like the Menezes case. If he had a gun and was shooting back or theatening to fair enough.

The wrong verdict here "could" spark something again.... just saying, just in time for Christmas to.

your not wrong there, the population has got so large it will only take a very small thing to set of a cascade or domino effect, one thing will lead to another, to another and so forth.
