ITALY: Evitions of independent university spaces in Milan and Bologna

ExCuem bookshop eviction in Milan

201/05/10 by Struggles in Italy

ex-cuem_7-290x290 Ex Cuem was founded by a group of students at the University Statale di Milano. They reopened the CUEM, an independent 40 year-old bookshop that went bankrupt in October 2011 due to debt and false accounting, closing its 150m2 premises.
