TIRANA, Albania | Albanian students demand that tuition fees be cut in half
TIRANA, Albania— Public university students protesting in the Albanian capital have turned down offers to negotiate with the government, saying their demands must be met first.
Students on Saturday defied the rain and increased their demands, also turning down support from the political opposition. They have blocked a main street in front of the Education Ministry and some parents have joined them.
The protesters declined to meet with Education Minister Lindita Nikolla, who noted that the government cannot solve all of their demands since tuition fees are set by the universities themselves.
