Occupations in Pula and Rijeka and activities in other cities

At the plenary session of November 20th held at the University of Pula it was decided that the students will occupy the University on Monday 23rd. Since approximately 8:30am all lecture halls have been locked and the University is controlled by the students!

At the last plenary session at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Rijeka, held on November 19th, it was decided that today one lecture hall will be occupied. The plenum will be held at 6pm to decide on further actions. As we have learned, the lecture hall has been successfully occupied but the students have had a confrontation with the acting dean who has verbally abused the occupiers, threatened to throw them out and disconnected the internet connection in the lecture hall that is being occupied. He has also decided to employ security guards who are suppose to confirm the identities of the students who enter the faculty building before tonight’s plenary session!

Meanwhile, at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb the students have taken the largest lecture hall – D7 – where a plenary session is currently in progress. At the last plenary session, held on November 17th, it was decided that we will occupy D7 on Monday 23rd at noon, after which a plenary session will immediately be held at which students will decide whether to occupy the entire faculty building or rather undertake alternative methods of fighting for the right to free education.

At the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Split students are planning to hold a plenary session tomorrow, on November 24th, at 6pm, at which they will decide on the possible occupation of their faculty also.
