The Buenos Aires neighborhoods, such as Villa Crespo, Caballito, Belgrano, Paternal, Colegiales, Liniers, Patricios and Palermo, among others, gathered in the main protesters called by Kirchner "National Ruidazo" against the growth of public services. There have also been concentrations in the municipalities of Buenos Aires, such as San Isidro, Quilmes, La Plata and Morón.

On December 28, when Secretary of State for Energy Javier Iguacel announced a series of increases in transport, electricity and gas, to be applied from the first day of January to April, this led to protests in different porteños districts and in front of the Quinta de Olivos presidential, as happened last night.
After the announcement, it would be Iguacel's resignation and his replacement with Gustavo Lopetegui, who was already in the national cabinet.
