Increasing house prices in Argentina's capital have left 3 out of every 10 families with nowhere to live. This has led to violent land grabs in some of the city's poorest areas. And for the government it is fast becoming a serious issue with no solution in sight. Al Jazeera's Teresa Bo has the story from Buenos Aires.
Buenos Aires is fast becoming one of the most looked up to cities in the world when it comes to reinventing itself thru transportation. Just over a year ago they opened MetroBus BRT (constructed in less than 7 months) on 9 de Julio Avenue, which many say is the world's widest street. The redistribution of 4 lanes of car traffic to exclusive bus use has yielded huge dividends for the city and is a bold statement from the administration of Mayor Mauricio Macri about how Buenos Aires thinks about its streets. Over 650,000 people now ride it every day, and MetroBus has cut the average commute in the city center from 50 to 55 minutes to an astonishing 18 minutes! But that has not been the only benefit. MetroBus's creation freed up miles of narrow streets that used to be congested and crammed bu...

The Buenos Aires mosque is huge. It was a gift to the Muslim community of Buenos Aires from the late King of Saudi Arabia, King Fahd. The land was donated by the Argentine government, and the facility was paid for by King Fahd. It’s on four acres of land in the heart of Palermo.

The City of Buenos Aires in Argentina once had a huge tramway network extending to many areas of the city. By the early 1960's all tram routes had been replaced by buses. At present there are 4 Tramway / Light Rail systems in operation in the Buenos Aires area. The tourist tram which operates over street trackage operates at weekends with preserved trams from Portugal and Buenos Aires, while pre-metro line E2 is an extension of the subway system but operates as an independent system. Tren de la Costa runs on a formation of a former broad gauge suburban railway and uses Italian built trains on standard gauge tracks. Most recent Light Rail line is the demonstration line which runs along the docks in central Buenos Aires and utilizes a Spanish Citadis type tram. Sit back and enjoy some transp...

Argentina's indigenous Mapuche and their supporters marched through the streets of Buenos Aires to demand the extension of law 26.160 or the indigenous territorial law, Wednesday, that would see further protections to their ancestral lands. Passed in 2006 and extended twice, the law protects the inherent land and territorial rights of Argentina's indigenous peoples.
