Mate Kapović, assistant professor at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (University of Zagreb) and political activist  (Academic Solidarity, Zagreb)

Academic Solidarity is the first directly democratic trade union in the sphere of science and higher education in Croatia. It has spread to several cities in only a few months, gaining wide spread media attention and support, influencing the mass rebellion against the introduction of neo-liberal laws in education throughout Croatian universities.

Vedrana Bibić (The Occupation Cookbook, Plenum delegate; Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Zagreb) 

A school occupation is not, as the corporate media like to portray it, a hostile takeover. It is an action by those who are already its inhabitants – students, faculty, and staff – and those for whom the school exists. The student activism, their single demand (‘free publicly financed education on all levels available to all’ i.e. legal abolition of all fees within the educational system) and their directly democratic methods have created organizational structures regularly used two years after the initial take over of the faculty in the spring 2009.
