UPDATE: Occupations

This is just in:

"Today in Croatia, the students have occupied the University of Pula, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Rijeka (where the administration has hired private security to stop the occupation from happening but the students occupied the faculty anyway). All decisions were my in a direct democratic manner by the respective student plenums.
The demand is the same as half a year ago: free education for all on all levels of education (including postgraduat studies) [today more than 60% of Croatian students pay for their education]

More occupations are expected.

One world - one struggle!
