Sit-in at UPR Rector’s Office

by

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – Students at the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras campus held a sit-in today at the UPR Rector’s office to demand that she begin negotiations about the upcoming tuition increase. Earlier this year, students shut down nearly every campus of the 11 campus system for 2 months to prevent this tuition increase. The university intends to introduce the $800 fee increase in January. Next Wednesday, students will be holding an assembly to decide if they should go on strike again.
