Students from Ben Gurion University are to go on hunger strike as of Wednesday, Channel Two reported Tuesday. The escalation of the strike, now in its 25th day, comes after the National Student Union said late Monday night that it had rejected the draft agreement proposed by the Prime Minister's Office to end the strikes in universities and colleges across the country. "Their insistence on raising tuition fees and a setting up a destructive mechanism for the educational establishment is plain to see. Classes will not resume, and protests will continue until the government's sanity is restored or until its complete collapse," read a statement released by the union. The universities and colleges are protesting the Schohat Committee's wish to raise tuition fees.
