The law was sanctioned yesterday in the middle of a protest by the trade unions of the sector and leftist parties.
In the midst of strong protests and only with the ruling party's vote, Buenos Aire's legislation yesterday approved the creation of UniCabe, a proposal rejected by teachers' unions.
The law was sanctioned thanks to the support of 34 lawmakers of Vamos Juntos, since no other block of the exhibition supported the initiative, on the day marked by 24-hour strikes.
Outside the building, militants from trade union unions, students' centers and left-wing groups maintained a strong concentration against the initiative and clashed with members of the city police.
A strong security operation has been set up in that area, so the Legislature has remained fully fenced, and MPs had to enter their offices Thursday, Thursday, a few hours before the start of the project in place.
During the session, which was closed to the public and from which only rectors of 29 teachers could participate, the opposition mainly questioned the operation and financing of UniCabe.
Kirchnerism called for "ending hypocrisy" and considered that by this law the ruling party "is trying to build a model that is based on a student as an individual entrepreneur, and the teacher must be disciplined."
"I want a city where students are trained for life, not for the market," said lawmaker Leandro Santoro of Unidad Ciudadana.
Representatives of Evolution, meanwhile, stressed that the university is not a "solid budget" because the decision has decided to change its original initiative and continue its teachers in the first draft that proposed to be eliminated. "Before the funding of UniCabe came from the 29 institutes, it's the only solid project, we do not know where the money will come from," said Leandro Halperin. They also thought that the new organization "will not be able to compete with training centers" that already work in the city, so these tertiary institutions will "disappear in a stroke".
