  • Description

    STUDENTS AT PRAGUE'S CHARLES UNIVERSITY HAVE VOTED TO CONTINUE BY AN EXTRA DAY THEIR SIT-IN STRIKE AGAINST THE REMOVAL OF ALEXANDER DUBCEK AS CZECHOSLOVAKIAN COMMUNIST PARTY SECRETARY. THE DECISION WAS MADE YESTERDAY -- THE SECOND DAY OF THEIR DEMONSTRATION.

    THE DEMONSTRATION HAS BEEN ACCOMPANIED BY AN ATTACK IN THE PARTY NEWSPAPER RUDE PRAVO, WHICH HAS WARNED THE STUDENTS THAT THEY SHOULD NOT INTERFERE IN THE INTERNAL AFFAIRS OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY.

    ALTHOUGH POSTERS PUBLICISING THE STRIKE WERE PASTED UP IN MANY PARTS OF THE CHARLES UNIVERSITY, THE DEMONSTRATION IS REPORTED TO BE A LIMITED ONE.

    STUDENTS CLAIM THAT POLICE HAVE TOLD THE UNIVERSITY AUTHORITIES TO REMOVE PLACARDS AND POSTERS INSULTING THE NEW PARTY SECRETARY, DR. GUSTAV HUSAK, FROM WINDOWS.

    DESPITE PICKETS ON MANY FACULTY BUILDINGS, STUDENTS WHO SAY THEY CANNOT SPARE THE TIME AWAY FORM STUDIES HAVE CONTINUED TO ATTEND CLASSES.
