Student Power: Puerto Rico and Zagreb

June 8. Students at the University of Zagreb crash a session of the university senate, whose members were going to vote on fee increases. As you can see in the video above, the senators were forced to leave the room.

June 1. Members of the student negotiating committee at the University of Puerto Rico, where students at all 11 campuses have been on strike since late April, report on the progress of the negotiations and explain their demands. Unfortunately, talks have now apparently broken down and the university administration has resorted to threats of legal action and the use of repressive police actions. Details here and here.

As always, our thanks to the comrades at Occupy California for keeping us informed.
