“Unsere Uni!”: University of Vienna Occupied

More info on the occupation (including a live video stream from the main lecture hall and updates from other Austrian universities) here (mostly in German).

The following communiqué was posted on Indybay.Org:

We, students from all disciplines at the University of Vienna, independent from political groups or parties and spontaneously gathered in face of catastrophic developments in our university system, have squatted our university’s main lecture hall on Thursday afternoon, and have now been occupying a large part of our university for more than 60 hours.

Dear fellow students, 

We, students from all disciplines at the University of Vienna, independent from political groups or parties and spontaneously gathered in face of catastrophic developments in our university system, have squatted our university’s main lecture hall on Thursday afternoon, and have now been occupying a large part of our university for more than 60 hours, with grass-roots democratic decision making. 

Now we call out to you, our fellow students in Europe and the world, to join us in the transformation of our universities. Support us, get in touch with us and read the attached file! 

With all the best from the buzzing press centre, 
The Squat the University of Vienna
