Brazil faces mass protests against education spending cuts
TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) – On Wednesday Brazil’s National Student Union called for protests against what it called spending cuts after the Education Ministry said it was freezing nearly a quarter of discretionary spending — $۱٫۸۵ billion.
Marches took place in over 200 cities, according to a count by the Globo TV network, gathering reportedly 150,000 across the country.
In the capital Brasilia, some 7,000 students and university professors marched to Congress, carrying signs against the cuts.
