Students protested against the statements by Chairman of the Board Dijkhuizen after an appeal on Facebook. They see no future in making farming even more intensive.
The demonstrators carried banners with texts such as: The food problem is an allocation problem and Organic can feed the world. At the same time the group shouted slogans and waved courgettes around. The message mostly got lost among the general clamour in the hall, given that it took some time to find a working amplifier.
At the end, a spokesperson called on students to study this issue and come to the debate with Dijkhuizen. The group is still in discussions the Executive Board, but the plan is for the debate to take place next week in Forum. After the protest was over, the group also marched past the Atlas building.
