University of Vienna occupied for Free Education

Since Oct.22nd thousands of students at the University of Vienna are occupying various lecture halls to protest against the increasing commercialisation [against the Bologna process] and for free and emancipatory public education!!

Please send messages of support to

...and forward this post as wide as possible.

I will translate some of the German soon.

"There are more than 2500 people in the main lecture hall (audimax) and around. there's food, music and political debate, and the clear will to continue the occupation and keep the new space that we have opened up for our self organization.

there is no central organization, and n permanent structure, but the degree of spontanous self organization is amazing. people that have never been involved in student political groups (or any other) are taking action and working their asses off, turning from more or less passively accepting their situation to being actors and organizers."
