Students’ protests

Protest in defense of education in Brazil

More than one million people took part in protests against education budget cuts and the pension reform

Workers, students, and professors are mobilizing with other sectors against dismantling of public education

The students mobilized demanding an end to indebtedness, criminalization of students, gender-based inequality and sexual harassment as well as an improved budget for education, a mental health program in higher education institutions and spaces for civic education


For a decade, the government has been systematically under-funding the university, and has threatened the students’ and teachers’ unions for protesting.
