Puerto Rico Students Approve Strike Settlement

From our friends at the StudentActivism blog:

"Students from the University of Puerto Rico have ratified an agreement to end the strike that shut ten of UPR’s eleven campuses for nearly two months. Some three thousand students met yesterday to approve the agreement in a mass meeting. They also voted to call another strike in January if the administration fails to keep its end of the deal or attempts to impose new fees. Monday’s meeting, the first mass gathering of students from across the UPR system in the university’s history, capped UPR’s first-ever system-wide student strike."
