Students to hold strike at Bar Ilan University

Students at Bar Ilan University will hold a two hour strike Wednesday in opposition to the Shohat Committee decision to privatize higher education. The strike will be held between 12p.m. and 2p.m. and include a march through the university. According to student union chairman Itamar Donfeld, "We will continue to fight for student rights and to have our voices heard when it comes to things concerning us. We will not let a committee go against a government decision and leave the students out of it." The strike follows Tuesday's strike at Ben Gurion University in the Negev by students, senior and junior staff.
