Raging students protest

On 19. 05. about 10.000 students disagreeing with new reform by Slovenian goverment, gathered in Ljubljana. The plan is to lower the maximum limit of income for working students.

First gathering started at abou 1pm, at Prešernov trg, and then demonstrations continued to the street in front of a parliamental building. Infrastructure was protected by riot police forces and fence corridor was set for it’s protection. Angry with current situation in Slovenian politics, protesters,chanting anti-goverment stating, first started to engage police forces. Some of them later threw rocks, eggs and bottles, even molotov was thrown at the windows of parliamental bulding, and targeted policemen. They dispersed attackers with some pepper spray.  Last of the protesters were keeping up until 7pm.

    Možakar, super fotke, angleščino imaš pa ogabno. Drži se slovenščine

    • unknown

      angleščina je bla za moje pojme (čeprav tipa sploh ne poznam), dovolj razumljiva in čist fajn napisana.
      me zanima, kak bi ti napisu …

  5. Whatever

    Whatever. I think the foto with “Last Minute Center” is apropos. Basically, this is a bunch of kids who go to university for free after getting admitted following a joke board examination, receive payment for sinecures, live in a relatively wealthy country for the Balkans (better lifestyle that Italy), go home every weekend to mommy, and expect to be on the studentski bon until they are 30.

    The organizers of the protest are professional students who take 15million EUR a year from the tax on student wages to support their “Student Union.” Someone should audit those creeps. Most of the kids who were at the protest were high school age who had skipped because they were given the option to go to the protest (and rock concert/beer bash) or go to school.

    Yeah, “Last Minute Center” travel agency sign is important. All that mala dela money goes to those summer trips to Korčula and Hvar. Grow up, Slovenian youth.
