AUB students are on strike agst the tuition increase
nearly 1000 thousand AUB students demonstrating on campus
I received that they managed to lockdown Nicely and several other buildings an hour ago
I was more than pleased to receive the following message from an AUB student activist:
You are all most likely aware of the new tuition policy that AUB is adopting next semester. This policy will affect everyone of us. We will not accept any increases in our tuition which is already too high for most people in this country to afford. The Palestinian Cultural Club has been actively collaberating with other AUB student groups and preparing for the strike tomorrow that will begin tomorrow at 8:00am.
Only a UNIFIED STUDENT MOVEMENT can stop this OUTRAGEOUS tuition policy. And for this reason it is of the highest importance that we all stand together and adhere to the UNIFIED STUDENT MOVEMNT'S call to BOYCOTT ALL CLASSES STARTING TOMORROW WEDNESDAY AT 8:00 AM.
There will also be a sit in at Main Gate tomorrow, Wednesday 12:00 pm.
We must all boycott our classes and be present at the sit in in high numbers for the strike to be successful.
SAY NO TO THE NEW TUTION POLICY
JOIN THE STUDENT MOVEMENT
TAKE BACK AUB! "
