On Wednesday 24 November, tens of thousands of students walked out of their Schools, Colleges and Universities in protest against the cuts and austerity measures in the U.K., while others occupied their campuses!
Here is a list of some of the blogs from this weeks occupations which took place across the UK. The students have put up their demands and each occupation can be followed at length. And here is a decent BBC overview of the occupations. Two websites by some of the campaign organizers: Education Activist Network and NCAFC.
Meanwhile in Italy, student protests literally exploded all over the country to block the approval of the new infamous Gelmini reform, which aims at privatizing the university and turning it into a profit-making machine. Thousands and thousands of students have held demonstrations all over the peninsula and occupied university buildings and even the famous leaning Tower of Pisa!
