Father bringing food to son at university of puerto rico arrested and assaulted by police

May 17, 2010

University of Puerto Rico students on strike three weeks protesting, ” against Certification 98, a government decree, which cuts $100 million from the university budget and eliminates tuition waivers for some students. The student strikers are also demanding no increases in tuition or privatization of services. The cuts are part of the draconian austerity policies imposed by Governor Luis Fortuño on behalf of Wall Street, which included the sacking of 30,000 public sector workers in 2009.”
