Stories: STUDENT PROTESTS IN LJUBLJANA
15,000 Slovenian students violently protested against planned government reforms that would limit the ammount of work they can do alongside their studies. This would further worsen their financial situation on top of the negative stipend politics of Slovenian government. The protest began in Slovenian capitol Ljubljana's city center. In the afternoon, they moved in front of Slovenian parliament building where they started throwing stones, eggs, signposts or anything that could be thrown into the parliament building or the police. On several occasions they attacked the police that responded with pepper spray. Eventually, they caused severe damage to the parliament building, many windows were broken, a molotow was thrown in front of the building. Result: 30 arrests and more than 30,000 EUR of damage to the parliament building.
