Argentina Protests: Massive protests over education cuts under new President Milei | Oneindia

According to protest organisers, hundreds of thousands of Argentines flooded the streets to express their outrage over cuts to higher public education under the newly elected President Javier Milei.

Students, professors, parents, and alumni from the country's 57 state-run universities rallied together on Tuesday, uniting in defence of free public university education amidst the economic turmoil plaguing South America.

Joined by labour unions, opposition parties, and private universities, the demonstrations spread from Buenos Aires to major cities like Cordoba, marking one of the largest protests against the austerity measures implemented since Milei assumed office in December.

While police estimated around 100,000 participants in the capital alone, organisers claimed the number soared closer to half-a-million, effectively paralysing the city centre for hours.
