Brazil education budget cuts: Tens of thousands protest reforms

Brazil’s president faces one of his biggest challenges yet as tens of thousands demonstrate against his cuts to education spending.

Activists in Brazil are vowing to continue their fight against cuts to the education budget that prompted mass protests earlier this month.

They are part of a raft of measures the government says are necessary to get the country out of its financial crisis.

But opponents have called it an attack on critical thinking.
