Happy Easter, Everybody!


I hope you are having a peaceful and relaxing holiday weekend, whether you celebrate Easter or not.

As you might have heard, President János Áder signed the legislation making Central European University’s operations in Hungary impossible into law this week. Demonstrations in Hungary keep going on, now the aim is to get MPs to refer the law to revision to the Constitutional Court (and the whole regime to leave, while we’re at it). The demonstrators are mostly university students, protesting peacefully against this irrational, outrageous and outright stupid act of the government.

Meanwhile, on Easter Monday, there will be demonstrations held all around the world. If you want to show support for academic freedom, check here if there will be an event near you. And if you know about other events, let me know either in the comments or DM!
