In Solidarity with the Students @ UPR

In the end there will be nothing left to privatize but the island itself.

The issue stems from Puerto Rico's economic crisis, governmental cutbacks and the universities ballooning deficit which is at nearly 100 million dollars.

University students have been on strike since Wednesday protesting what they're calling a privatization of the public universities and a budget that could cut programs and tuition assistance.

The following are links to various stories related to the situation thus far:
