Argentina’s Milei faces biggest protest over university budget cuts

Hundreds of thousands of Argentines protested in Buenos Aires against President Javier Milei’s austerity measures, particularly budget cuts affecting public universities. The demonstrations reflect growing tension over spending cuts aimed at addressing a deep fiscal deficit but causing economic hardship. Protesters, supported by unions, carried banners advocating for public university defense and education rights. The University of Buenos Aires (UBA) warned of potential closure due to budget reductions. Milei’s administration, grappling with an economic crisis inherited from overspending, defends the cuts as necessary for fiscal stability. However, critics argue that free education is crucial for social equality and access to opportunities. Teachers and supporters emphasize the role of public education in societal transformation and individual development.
