November 2022: the first wave of student occupations of schools and universities demanding the end of the fossil fuels era.
On 11/11/22 we spent the afternoon with some of the students’ occupations in Lisbon: Faculty of Sciences, Faculty of Humanities, Faculty of Social and Human Sciences and António Arroio High School.
A few hours after these portraits were shot, 4 students from the Faculty of Humanities were arrested and forcibly removed from their Faculty by some 20 police officers - including a full brigade of riot police - following orders from the Faculty’s Director Miguel Tamen, who never appeared on the scene of this peaceful protest. The students chose to proceed to trial, which started this week (29/11/2022).
We were unable to include the no less important occupations of the Engineering and Technology University (already forced to withdraw at this date) and the amazing occupation of Camões High School.
