Students in Groningen will be holding a protest march Tuesday afternoon, as part of a national day of action demanding an end to the Dutch student loan system (where Dutch and EU students can borrow their tuition fees of abour 2,000 euros per year, and use the money for living costs). The protesters want a debt-free basic grant and compensation for all the years that they have had to borrow, reports OOGTV.
In Groningen about 75 students are to participate in the protest march.
Various student protest action may also follow, with a call for a national strike on June 3. Yes, that’s right, a national strike of all students.
The campaigns are part of the #NietMijnSchuld campaign, led by the FNV (a Dutch union) Young & United and the LSVb (the national student advocacy group).
