QCOSTARICA – On Thursday, August 27, public university students will take to the streets to demand an 8% increase in the 2016 budget.

The protest is being organized by the Federation of Students of the University of Costa Rica ( Federación de Estudiantes de la Universidad de Costa Rica – FEUCR), demanding the government increase the education budget to 8% of Gross Domestic Product (PIB – Produccion Interno Bruto in Spanish).

The student refuse the government’s proposal of 7.18%, saying “it is unconstitutional under Article 85”.

“We are asking for the negotiation of the VI Convenio FEES for the next fives years and not only for the coming year,” says the Federation.

The biggest of the protest marches is expected to leave the Universidad de Costa Rica (UCR) campus in San Pedro at 9:00am, with other marches being organized across the country.
