Statement of the student council department about the involvement of the student council initiatives of the uni summer festival

On May 13, many student council initiatives received an invitation to support the organization of the summer festival by agreeing to collect the bottle deposit on the afternoon of the summer festival. The money collected (the amount was estimated at 2-500 euros in the email) was to be kept by the first student council that volunteered to collect the deposits.

First of all, we would like to emphasize that we do not condemn any student council initiative for accepting this offer and participating in the implementation of the summer festival in this way.

The AStA grieves for its former coworker

The AStA grieves for its former coworker Andreas Aschaber, known as Fonse / Fonsi. Fonse passed away on 2024-06-19 due to illness. Fonse was a dedicated part of the AStA office from November 2017 to July 2022. We remember Fonse as a particularly amicable and solidary coworker and colleague in the fight for a free and just society. It was especially important to him to aid students who came to the AStA with their worries in any way possible.

Our thoughts are with Fonses family and friends. We wish them lots of strength for this difficult time.

Detailed statement regarding the police eviction of the protest camp at the FU on 7th of May 2024

Statement regarding the eviction and police brutality on the 7th of May 2024

This morning, the theater courtyard in the Rost- and Silberlaube at the FU was occupied by activists in solidarity with palestine. As far as we know, the university ordered a police eviction within a very short time without giving any notice. A massive police force then evicted those involved in the occupation, also using physical violence. Outside students and observers also experienced police violence in front of and inside the university buildings.
