1. From homes to the streets -protest TODAY

From homes to the streets – Students’ protest against the housing supplement reform on today Monday 29 April

Do the decisions of the Government’s spring session on spending limits aggravate you? Are you worried for your income due to the housing cuts ahead? Is moving to a tent the next unfortunate step? Come and protest against the housing supplement reform with us at Sorin aukio on Monday 29 April at 12-14! Tamko is taking part in TREY’s protest and encourages TAMK students to do so too.

The event will feature speeches from students and protesting against the housing supplement reform. If you wish, you can bring a cardboard box or a tent to symbolically describe the weakening of student housing. More info can be found from TREY’s website: https://trey.fi/en/from-homes-to-the-streets

2. Happy vappu!

Tamko wishes everyone happy vappu! May it be filled with joy and colours!

The staff in our office will also be celebrating wappu on Wednesday 1.5. and our office is closed on then.
