Brazil: Rio protesters march against planned education cuts

Thousands of protesters took to the streets of Rio de Janeiro on Thursday, during a national day of protest against President Jair Bolsonaro's government planned cuts to federal universities. Earlier in May, Brazil's far-right government announced a 30 percent cut to federal university funding. The decision was strongly criticised by many top education officers, who claimed that it would put... Еще public university at risk and therefore access to higher education for young people. The government is also planning to withdraw financial support from the human sciences and prioritise areas such as veterinary, engineering and medicine, which, in Bolsonaro's words, can generate immediate return to the taxpayers.
