University of Copenhagen under OccupationTagged as: culture free_spaces social_struggles solidarity
As a part of the global week of action to reclaim education students at the University of Copenhagen have occupied and blocated the central administration building of the university, thereby hindering all central administrations personel including the principality in working.
The students, numbering around 200, demand are a full democratization of the university, an end to marketization, and a guarantee that no fees will be introduced. The students have demanded that the principality must be fired and replaced by a new leadership consisting of and elected by students and staff.
Tonight approx. a hundred students have slept over in the occupied and barricaded buildings. Workshops, plenaries, study rooms, and a communal kichen is set up. Students are staying until tomorrow, thereafter leaving for the summit in Louvain, Belgium.
