Leaders of the tent-city social protest movement announced Monday that they have nixed their demand for cameras to be present during any negotiations to be held with the prime minister, following a dispute with the National Student Union over the issue.

"The headquarters of the tent city protests admits that it made a mistake by demanding that cameras be present during the dialogue with the prime minister. The student union managed to convince us that the central precondition for holding talks will be the cancellation of the national housing committees law."

The statement ended "we are a broad movement and we will not be defeated by any single person or any amount of spin."

The joint announcement was issued by the protest movement and the Student Union on Wednesday afternoon after the media widely reported tension between the union and tent city protest leaders.
