Protesters from Costa Rica’s public universities to march on Casa Presidencial

August 13, 2010

 

Students, professors and administrators from Costa Rica’s four public universities will march to Casa Presidencial on Tuesday morning to demand an 11 percent budget increase over the next five years.

Some marchers will leave from Parque Nacional and the Plaza de la Democracia in San José at 9 a.m., while others will gather first at the State University at a Distance in Betania, near San Pedro, east of San José, and at the University of Costa Rica, in San Pedro center. All will converge on the Fuente de la Hispanidad, at the San Pedro traffic circle. From there, they will make the short walk south to Casa Presidencial in Zapote.


The traffic police are advising commuters to seek alternative routes on Tuesday morning.
