University of Puerto Student Strike

For nearly a month, a large swath of University of Puerto Rico students across campuses on the island are striking new policies that limit tuition waivers, among others. They have taken over the main campus leading to its shutdown until at least July 31st.

It has received very little coverage in the US news despite the length and vitality of the strike as well as massive support shown by family, friends, professors, unions, artists and many others. This is not the first time students have gone on strike but it certainly has been on of the most vibrant and most important waves. Learn more about the strike and demands on Democracy Now:
