Hundreds of protesters demonstrating against Guatemalan lawmakers’ decisions to approve a controversial budget that cut education and health spending broke into the country’s Congress building Saturday, setting part of it on fire.

Video on social media showed large flames shooting out of a window in the legislative building in Guatemala City as police used tear gas on protesters.

“We are outraged by poverty, injustice, the way they have stolen the public’s money,” Rosa de Chavarria, a psychology professor, told The Associated Press.
