Protest at the University of El Salvador against privatization of water

By staff

San Salvador, El Salvador – Hundreds of students, professors, professionals, teachers and workers at the University of El Salvador (UES) gathered on June 29 to protest against the new attempt by the oligarchic right wing in El Salvador to privatize water.

The large gathering was led by UES Rector Roger Arias, who categorically rejected this new shock from El Salvador’s private businesses and their political arm, the ARENA party, which is once again attempting to privatize public services.

Their slogan was “water is a public good and as a University we will defend it.” These words reverberate deeply in this new conjuncture in El Salvador, in which the right wing elite now has a legislative majority and hopes to privatize water and many other public services.
