A new wave of student movements and occupations of university buildings is taking place around Europe. In Amsterdam, the 25th of March marked the one month anniversary of the occupation of the Maagdenhuis, an administrative building of the Universiteit van Amsterdam located in the center of the city in Spui street. A group of students are now living in the university space and organising a whole range of activities such as lectures, workshops and presentations with local and international intellectuals who support the movement. They are demanding direct democracy, participation in the management processes, the halt of the financial cut and of the progressive corporatization of the university.
