In Puerto Rico, thousands of college students from the University of Puerto Rico in Río Piedras have approved a three-day, full-campus shutdown to protest recent austerity measures they say endanger the higher education system. After the meeting, students marched through the university and closed all entrances to the campus. The students also called for the resignation of top university officials and left open the possibility of an indefinite strike if their demands are not met.
