“Occupy AUC”


These photos are brought to you by the on-campus student protests at AUC this week. They are asking for a tuition cap and a reduction of the tuition fees that were raised 7% this year. After waving signs outside the admin building the students (led by the Student Union) “occupied” the administration building.

As for me, I’m thrilled to be able to go to school here. While I don’t think a mini-protest is necessary, I’m continually entertained by the undergraduates’ passion in this post-Jan 25th Egypt (This sentence originally said “post-revolution Egypt,” about which I was informed by anthropology-student husband that we can’t call it that yet because the revolution continues.). And their masks.
