After a brief break in months of protests, they resumed Thursday at the University of Puerto Rico, The New York Times reported. Students have been protesting a new fee that effectively doubles costs for them. Last week, the president of the university quit and there were a few days of relative calm on the main campus. But on Thursday, the Times reported, students were able to close down the humanities departments and most access to the social sciences building.
