LSE IS OCCUPIED!!!!!
This morning sees the Vera Suite of the Old Building occupied by various student groups and activists. The occupation will be open at 11am and is planned to last until Thursday evening. The occupation will involve workshops and lectures to freely share knowledge.
The purpose of the occupation is to directly resist the current oppressive university structure- one where the curriculum does not reflect its diverse student body, market interests shape the university more than students themselves, and workers are bound in oppressive zero hour contracts. The occupation calls on management to divest from exploitative organisations, including companies that are making profit from the Israeli state’s illegal and racist occupation of Palestine. They also demand for the School to not implement the Counter Terrorism Bill, a bill that simply runs on the principle of targeting Muslim students who would dare dissent in any shape or form. You can find more of their demands here-https://www.facebook.com/notes/occupy-lse-free-university-of-london/why-we-are-occupying/404349579725976
We, the Warwick Anti Racism Society, support all of the demands of the occupiers and we salute our brothers, sisters and non binary siblings for holding the principles of democracy, equality and liberation at the heart of their occupation.
Right here at Warwick, our students are attacked with CS spray  for discussing Free Education. Our water machines come from companies that operate on illegally occupied land . Our Vice Chancellor calls students that dare protest what THEIR university looks like ‘yobs’  Our curriculum does not reflect its diverse student body, and our institution does little to nothing to eradicate the problem that there are only 17 black female professors in the UK. 
The Warwick Anti Racism Society therefore stands in solidarity with students occupying and can only echo their demands.
Long live the Free University of London!
