2 week anniversary

Today it’s two weeks that the student protests started in Germany. Time for a recapitulation:

  • about 90 of Germany’s 118 universities are occupied at the moment, the map below shows all occupied universities in Europe
  • comprehensive lists with demands have been formulated and delivered for discussion to the secretaries of education of the individual Länder
  • while some occupations were finished by police more and more students are joining the protest nationwide
  • students are also now co-operating nationally and internationally to join forces and enforce the public pressure
  • today the German Federal President  Horst Köhler strengthend the students demand for better education stating that out of 100 children with parents who hold an academic grade 83 begin a study themselves, while it’s only 23 children out of a non-academic family
  • plans are now to prolongue the protests throughout the Christmas Season
