Re: [Yasmin_announcements] europeen universities striking ?

Hi Everybody,

French universities have been striking and demonstrating for a month now
against reforms that (roughly said) will
- reduce research freedom for searchers-teachers, increase other tasks if no
good research is done (according to certain evaluation criteria), etc.
- increase power for the president of the university (they could choose alone
who to engage, etc.)
- damage the future teachers formation
- damage the CNRS
etc... (money/power against education and culture)

We have heard some spanich universities are striking too.
What is happening in Greece now ?

Would it be possible to have some feedbacks from university colleagues abroad
who are striking ? or who have been striking ?
why ?
how long ?
means ?
any result ?

for french readers :

Looking forward to hearing from you,
