Background: Some 4000 students forced their way into the Faculty of Medicine last night which had been ordered closed by the dean of the University. More than 700 were barricaded inside the faculty this morning (15/1) demanding punishment of the leaders of the former military junta and the dismissal of a professor they said cooperated with the previous regime. The students set up their own radio transmitter and broadcast slogans calling for a new democratic and liberal constitution now under discussion in the Parliament. The Police force that had surrounded the University was ordered to withdraw this morning.
