Description

At least 10,000 teachers and their supporters took to the streets to demand greater investment in education and a 10% wage hike. Healthcare workers have staged similar protests in recent days. The teachers were met by violent police attacks this morning in which a teleSUR producer and several photo-journalists were among those injured. President Horacio Cartes sent Congress this morning his spending bill for next year, which offers no increase in spending on healthcare or education. teleSUR http://multimedia.telesurtv.net/web/telesur/#!en/video/maestros-y-medicos-paraguayos-marchan-por-mayor-inversion-en-su-sector-en
