<nettime> An Open Letter to Japan Student Services Organization

On 26th January 2009, members of "The Association of Blacklisted Students of
Tokyo" (*burakkurisuto no kai in tokyo*) visited the office of the Japan
Student Services Organization (JASSO) in Ichigaya, Tokyo, with the aim of
demanding the withdrawal of the "Blacklisting Plan" aimed at those who
cannot afford to repay their scholarship loans. They also demanded the
realization of providing true scholarships as opposed to State-sponsored
student loans [under the name of "scholarships"]. As of this writing, they
are still waiting for an answer from JASSO.

Below is the Open Letter addressed to JASSO.   [...]  www.edu-factory.org
