Students Against Cuts Shake Up the Walls of the University 

On the 19th of September at 8:00, a group of students marched into the main building of the University of Helsinki and announced that it was now occupied. We, “Students Against Cuts,” are behind this occupation, through which we have made noise about the rights of all students. In occupying the main building of the University of Helsinki, we wished to draw attention to the precarious past, present, and unknown future faced by students, which is being exacerbated by the government’s plans to cut housing allowance and affordable housing and to pursue racist immigration policy.
