28,000 Israeli University Students End Their 11-day Strike

Download PDF for this date

Israel’s 28,000 university students called off an 11-day strike against higher tuition fees today and planned to return to classes Sunday after the Chanukah vacation.

A student committee adopted the decision to end the strike by a vote of 14 to 12 with four abstentions after the students became convinced they would gain nothing by their walkout. The leader of the student organization resigned after the vote.
