We were in Hannover today protesting against the state's (i.e. Lower Saxony's) plan to cut university funding a lot starting next year. That will be quite painful for all of our university (as well as the others), leading to some departments being closed completely and mostly costing the jobs of young researchers who are important for helping run the teaching and looking after the students and who are supposed to be the ones to run universities in the future.
About 20000 people came there, 3000 of which from Göttingen, and were very (too?) well behaved. We made it into the main evening news. Slogans included among many others

Good Bye Learning,
Mit einem Loch im Kopf gegen ein Loch in der Tasche,
pH 0 is erreicht, wir sind sauer and an amusing
Dumm fickt gut.
