2,800 Technion Students Go on Strike over Unresolved Dispute

Download PDF for this date

All 2,800 students in the Israel Institute of Technology went on strike this morning to protest an unresolved dispute in the Technion’s architecture faculty.

The dispute involving issues of personality and different study programs, began three years ago. It came to a head this year when the Technion accepted one of the proposed study programs and recommended a splitting of the faculty. The strike will probably continue until Friday when summer vacation begins for the students.
