Movement in support of 5 Students
Expelled at the German University in Cairo

Once again students at the German University in Cairo (GUC), a rather elitist private institution with 5,500 students, are affected by repressive measures of the administration. Five students were suspended for protesting on campus while mourning the death of Karim Khozam, a GUC student who was killed during the uprising last year.
On February 29th hundreds of students protested against these suspensions and staged a sit-in at the admins office.
