May 17th, 2009

The occupation of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb continues for the 28th day. The classes are not held on the premises, but the Faculty Council has managed to organized classes at several other locations in the city, trying to create an appearance of work getting back to normal (despite the fact that a large percentage of the students boycott the classes, and many of them have problems making it to all the classes due to the fact that they often have to travel from one part of the city to another to attend classes).

Yesterday, the day before the local elections, the students held a protest march from their faculty building to the central square. A number of students from the Faculty of Political Sciences in Zagreb joined them, as well numerous citizens. During and after the protest we handed out brochures with information to citizens, and we’ve received words of encouragements from many of them.

Here are some photos from yesterday’s protest.
