Students and professors take to the streets in Argentina to protest against the adjustment to public universities

Buenos Aires – Several thousand students and professors from public universities in Argentina This Tuesday they staged the largest mobilization against the far-right president’s adjustment plan Javier Milei considering it a threat to the continuity of the free education that has trained several generations of Argentines and foreigners.

“If the university is empty, what do we fill the future with?” read a handwritten sign held by a young man at the university. Plaza de Mayo in Buenos Aires, epicenter of the mobilization. “In defense of public education”, which also had replicas throughout the country and was supported by unions, social organizations and opposition parties.

The crux of the conflict is the decision of the ultra-liberal president to maintain the 2023 national budget, despite a year-on-year inflation of almost 288% in March and ordering an increase in items unilaterally. The measure is part of the austerity and deregulation plan for the economy that Milei has been carrying out since he took office on December 10 and, according to him, is the only alternative to end the scourge of inflation.
