Earlier this afternoon, we received a visit from the University’s Academic Registrar and the Head of Security. They delivered us this letter. We are very disappointed that instead of responding to our reasonable demands and entering into negotiations, they have decided to issue us a letter trying to make us leave. What this letter does confirm is that we are not doing anything illegal in being here. We counter that if the university management really does want this space back and a cease to the disruption then it is up to them: negotiate with us, respond to our demands, apologise for the disgusting violence with which students were treated.
Today the occupation again grew significantly in number and we have been overwhelmed with messages of solidarity from across the country (and even international support!)
Let’s build on our growing momentum! Come and visit our occupation and look out for our programme of events over the weekend!
