We demand:

→ No Cyber Valley in Tübingen!

The University and the Max Planck Institute should end their cooperation with the actors involved. Above all, we do not accept cooperation with Amazon, ZF Friedrichshafen and SCHUFA.

→ Increased student participation!

The university must be democratized, students must play a decisive role in important decisions and processes. We demand the restoration of all participatory and political rights of all constituted student bodies and student organizations.

→ Transparency of research at the University of Tübingen!

We demand the disclosure of all current and planned cooperations and research projects at the University of Tübingen. Only then is a democratic participation of the students possible.

→ No more performance thinking!

Studies should be guided by society, the environment and people. Self-determination and sense of responsibility are central requirements for this. In particular, time and support for critical reflection, participation and political commitment must exist.

Away with the Bologna Reforms!

→ Financial relief for students!

We need affordable student housing. All tuition fees must be abolished. In addition, the living expenses must be unconditionally made available to students. In this respect, we support the demand of the FZS.

→ Solid basic funding of the university!

So that research can be guided by social interests, values and problems, it cannot be dependent on the private funds of corporations or other actors in the economy.

→ A strong nonmilitary clause!

No research for military purposes, not even concealed. We demand a strong and comprehensive nonmilitary clause, not only for the University of Tübingen but for the entire city area.

No matter whether students, university employees, pupils or residents of this city: It concerns us all! Come by, inform yourself, join in and shape the protest according to your ideas and wishes – or simply show your approval. Join us! Join us in occupying the lecturehalls in Tübingen and other cities! Obviously, rules will have to be broken in order to be heard.
