  • Description

    STUDENTS IN PRAGUE MET THROUGHOUT LAST NIGHT TO DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT TO CONTINUE THEIR STRIKES AND SIT-INS IN PROTEST AGAINST THE SOVIET UNION'S POST OCCUPATION POLICY.

    IN REACTION TO THE OUTCOME OF LAST WEEKEND'S COMMUNIST PARTY'S CENTRAL COMMITTEE MEETING. THE STUDENTS HELD DISCUSSION MEETINGS, SANG PROTEST SONGS, AND SLEPT INSIDE THEIR FACULTY BUILDINGS.

    THE CZECHOSLOVAK GOVERNMENT YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) URGED THE DEMONSTRATORS TO END THEIR SIT-INS AS SUPPORT FROM FACTORY WORKERS FLOWED IN FOR THE STUDENTS.

    PREMIER OLDRICH CERNIK ANNOUNCED THAT THE STRIKE BY 60,000 PRAGUE STUDENTS HAD TO STOP BECAUSE IT WAS SPREADING TO SCHOOLS AND DISRUPTING THE EDUCATION SYSTEM.

    THE STUDENTS HAVE ISSUED A 10 POINT RESOLUTION WHICH THEY'VE TACKED ON TO FACULTY DOORS. IT CALLS FOR CONTINUATION OF THE PARTY'S REFORMIST ACTION PROGRAMME FOR FREEDOM OF SPEECH, ASSEMBLY AND TRAVEL AND THE EVENTUAL LIFTING OF REIMPOSED PRESS CENSORSHIP.
