    IN THE UNIVERSITY TOWN OF LOUVAIN, BELGIUM TODAY, STUDENTS DEMONSTRATED IN THE STREETS, DEMANDING THAT THE UNIVERSITY BECOME EXCLUSIVELY FLEMISH-SPEAKING.

    TODAY'S DEMONSTRATIONS WERE THE CLIMAX OF A MASS CAMPAIGN AIMED AT FORCING THE AUTHORITIES TO DECLARE LOUVAIN UNIVERSITY A FLEMISH-LANGUAGE INSTITUTION.
