Give me Yavneh and its students

The strike continues, and gets worse. After a semi-violent protest today in which a number of people were injured, the student organization is threatening to close down the campus entirely beginning next week.

(That site also has a few choice lines on a matter I was wondering about. If factory workers go on strike the factory loses lots of money, but what leverage do striking students have? The only people they hurt by striking are themselves! Well, apparently the answer is that all the students will be unable to graduate or finish our projects on time, and our future employers will be slightly inconvenienced by the temporary lack of new workers. That sounds like a resounding victory for the students, if you ask me.)
