In the past thursday, 10th January, students gathered in front of the Ministry for Work, Family and Social Affairs at Kotnikova 28, in order to show their disaproval on how are being managed the scholarships this year in Slovenia. It includes all the delays and new standards that are not beneficial for students, such as the new rule of making proof of residency in the city and even so do not get the bonus amount for being away from home.
The students were mobilized through Facebook and the protest was very civil and quiet without any incident, carrying only protest signs and collecting signatures to be presented in the next days to Slovenian ombudsman.
This is not new and we have been seing the same happening across Europe. Austerity, tuition and education reforms, made students raise their voices and show their discontent as you can see through the photos!
