International Press Release ? Austrian Students Squat Universities!*
*Austrian students squat universities! Mass-demonstrations and broad

because the current situation has become untenable. Across the state, people
are losing their jobs and getting evicted, while social services are
slashed. California?s leaders from state officials to university presidents
