Brazil Protests Over Education Funding Cuts
Posted on 2019-05-16 12:28:16
Tens of thousands joined in demonstrations across Brazil to protest big cuts
in federal funding for public education.

Students and teachers marched in Sao Paulo, Brasilia, Rio de Janeiro,
Salvador and Recife against the decision to take away $1.85 billion from
funds for the public education network, from elementary schools to
universities.

President Jair Bolsonaro dismissed the protests, saying the cuts are part of
a wider effort to slash all government spending.

There were confrontations in Rio de Janeiro toward the end of the protest
there, but violent activists were quickly driven off by police using tear
gas.

A bus was set on fire in the city center but it was not immediately clear who
was responsible.
