Wednesday there is a demonstration in Nijmegen, Friday Zwolle and Utrecht and Saturday Amsterdam. Monday, March 15 is the final protest in Wageningen.

The series of demonstrations is part of the #Nietmijnschuld (Not my debt) campaign of the National Union of Students LSVb and FNV Young & United. In Rotterdam, no action is planned yet.
