The occupation is now fully secured and the activists are in control of the space. The workers have finished and left The Slate, and their exit was handled in a comradely and jovial manner. We can officially confirm the space now belongs to the occupying activists and looks to become increasingly active, so do make sure you watch this space (pun intended)!
Representatives from the occupation and Warwick SU also met with Stuart Croft, the Vice Chancellor, to discuss access arrangements and our demands. So far no progress has been made on our key demands, which are as follows:
1) The University must opt out of the Teaching Excellence Framework
2) The University must agree to Warwick Anti-Casualisation’s six demands for fair teaching conditions
3) The University must scrap the protest injunction and apologise for their handling of the events of 3 December, 2014 (for a detailed explanation, see: https://warwick4freeducation.wordpress.com/2016/12/02/statement-of-occupation/).
On a much lighter note, the activists have found a way to access The Slate’s audio and projector systems. Entertainment and bangers will commence…
