Yeah, it's not being taken with much enthusiasm here in the US, and definitely the US intelligence services aren't involved, at least not in any overt way.

I think I'm still in the afterglow of the Obama years, but I had sort of forgot that people still protest the US. Seems so . . . impotent. Since the US is utterly and permanently indifferent to foreigners' protests, the only possible benefit is to convince the national government to disassociate from the US. Since F2 is basically a permanent pariah with Trump's White House (he genuinely seemed to like Macri), and they already agree with the protesters against the Bolivian coup d'état, and Bolivia is not an issue than anyone in the US cares about (they were fine with Morales), I don't see the point of this mobilization.

Blaming the USA for every countries problems is like picking the low hanging fruit. It's harder to actually accept that socialist policies/corruption/incompetent leaders/religion are actually the real issues.

I find it interesting that anyone would think such actions would amount to anything other than wasting time. Folly is at epidemic levels always has been it is just empowered at the greater level by media and social media in these times.

What else they got going on?

Might as well show up, bang on your drum for a bit, and drink some mate with your bros.

I've also found it amusing that a politician in the US becomes a socialist when they advocate for universal health care.

Why aren't politicians who support social security, medicare, public firefighters, state owned highways, government police force, farm subsidies, considered socialists too?
