Students in Zagreb end protests

ZAGREB, Croatia

Students at the University of Zagreb’s philosophy faculty decided Sunday (May 24th) to end their five-week protest against plans to charge tuition fees. According to new rules set forth by the government, free tuition will be available only to students who pass their exams on time. Announcing their decision Sunday, student representatives said they don’t want to obstruct the work of their colleagues. Students in Rijeka and Zadar abandoned the protest about ten days ago.
