Meanwhile in Uruguay...
Today we commemorate our Independence Day (190th Anniversary).
A "celebration" with the Education unions on strike (claiming a 6% of the GDP for education instead of 4.5%) and the government signing an essentiality decree to counter it, with the Congress investigating the finances of the state-run oil company after several years of deficit and allegations of embezzlement (under the administration of the now Vice-president and also of the now city Mayor) while we pay the most expensive fuel of Latin America, with Justice investigating abuse and torture in juvenile detention centers, with the biggest fish-processing factory closing, leaving almost 1000 workers jobless, with an unemployment rate of 7.4% and rising, with an inflation rate of 9% and also rising when the government expected to keep it under 5%, and more.
At the end of June a poll sated that President Vázquez had 78% of approval. Another poll, from a different pollster, stated approval had dropped from 52% in June to 48% at the end of July. What would be the number at the end of this month?
So long ago seem the day when he was elected, and the elated crowd enjoyed the beginning of a third leftist government under the harangue of: "Celebrate Uruguayans, celebrate! The victory is yours!" Now, less than a year later, the honeymoon is over.
No fireworks on Independence Day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzeBZqkaOAs
