(ANSA) - Rome, October 12 - Italian students are
demonstrating Friday in 90 cities throughout the country to
protest against "the sale of public schools and destruction of
universities", a statement by the student activists' network
Conoscenza said.
"We are protesting to show our total opposition to the
proposed law 953 which would eliminate student representatives
in school boards and enable private companies to enter our
schools as happened after the 2010 approval of the Gelmini law",
said Roberto Campanelli, national coordinator of the Unione
Studenti (Students' Union).
Another measure opposed by students is the "tax increase
for students who have not completed their university studies in
the designated time and the reduction of scholarships, dramatic
measures which will prohibit many from attending university,"
Luca Spadon, the national spokesperson of the activist
organization Link Coordinamento Universitario' said.
Demonstrations are scheduled all day in Italy's main
squares "to highlight the dramatic situation suffered by
students who have been hit by the crisis in an unprecedented way
and who want to change schools and universities in a democratic
process", said a statement by the students' union.
