There’s going to be a demonstration in Buenos Aires tomorrow against a decision by the mayor, Mauricio Macri, to fatten up the budget of the Teatro Colon for rock legend Roger Waters while hacking chunks out of the Buenos Aires Youth Orchestras Program. Our correspondent adds:
The Program started by Claudio Espector 15 years ago reaches 1500 children, 230 teachers get minimum wages but is very important for the development of music education and social inclusion. Letters of support will be read tomorrow in a big street demonstration with the kids, teachers, families, friends and supporters.
