The organisation sent out the following message: “The university is shut down. Today, we will be elsewhere. But we will come when they return to their business as usual, we will keep shutting it down. (…) We will protest on our own terms.” The full statement can be read on the Instagram page of the group.

Campus totally closed

Wednesday evening, the Executive Board announced that all the buildings are closed and all the events on campus are cancelled. This is a request from the Rotterdam ‘triangle’ – consisting of the municipality, police and the Public Prosecution Service. The Rotterdam triangle is responsible for security in the city. Their lack of knowledge of the size and nature of the protest made them request the closure of the buildings, a spokesperson for the mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb said.
