Yesterday the students at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb held the 43rd plenary session, the first one after the summer break, at which they discussed a number of organizational issues. A member of the plenum was chosen to participate in the Omnibus for Direct Democracy panel. The students were reminded that the Sociology students’ club Discrepancy will be hosting a student symposium in November entitled “Student protests of 2009: Methods, Context and Implications”. The deadline for submitting abstracts (up to 250 words) is extended to October 1st. The official language of the symposium is English. For more information about applying and participating, please see this page.

Also present at the plenum were members of the Croatian Trade Union Association who invited the students to join their protests planned for next week. The students have elected 6 delegates who will meet with members of the Croatian Trade Union Association’s and report to the plenum on their demands and goals of the planned protests. The plenum will then discuss if the demands are in compliance with those of the students and decide whether, and in what way, will the student initiative participate in the protests.
