A group of students, teachers and non-teachers from the UNLP met at the door of the Rectorate located at 7 between 47 and 48 against the provision that requires a health passport specifically for the La Plata faculties.
Although this measure, which they demonstrate against the anti-vaccine group, was not announced but is being studied for next year, it would imply that those who are not vaccinated could continue classes virtually. Two of the students crowded in the center of La Plata spoke with this medium to give more details.
Federico Rivarola from the Faculty of Humanities, from the Alternative Student Association, assures that it is “a fairly broad movement.” As he explained, this measure by the UNLP would prevent the possibility of “exercising their right to study and work.”
“I am vaccinated but I am against mandatory vaccination, against those who do not allow those who are not vaccinated to study and work,” Rivarola explained. “They continue to exclude people saying ‘you don’t get vaccinated, you can’t come,'” he added to later confirm that they will go to the end, based on the Constitution. “
In the same vein, he affirmed that the dean of the UNLP would demand from the unvaccinated a weekly pcr that has a cost of five thousand pesos. In addition, it involved movements such as ATULP, FULP, FUA, student centers and unions for “governing and deciding outside of what the students choose.”
On the other hand, Rocío de Psicología elaborated on the measures of her faculty: “In our facu they are giving the possibility of taking virtual or face-to-face courses. That implies that those of us who are not vaccinated make a cut because Psycho has few practices and it would complicate us ”. Before concluding, he clarified “now it is optional, there is nothing stipulated about how it will be”.
