Tens of thousands of people protested in Buenos Aires, Argentina, against cuts to public universities

Tens of thousands of people on Tuesday they protested in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, against the cuts to public universities decided by the administration of the ultra-liberal president Javier Milei. This year his government has maintained university funding at the same level as 2023, but with the very strong inflation in the country (287 percent in March, and in Italy it is at 2.3) the value of those funds in real terms have practically disappeared: with the same budget you can buy or finance many fewer things than a year ago.

According to the rector of the University of Buenos Aires, Ricardo Gelpi, his university could be forced to close within three months without more funding. Milei, for his part, justified the cuts by saying that public universities are socialist indoctrination centers where «brain washing».

Milei was elected last year, with a controversial electoral program which provides for large cuts in various sectors of public spending, which he presented as the only way to revive Argentina’s economy which has been going through a very serious crisis for several years economic, with inflation at 147 percent and rampant poverty. Several protests have already been organized against Milei, and some of his measures have been taken States blocked by parliament.
