The University is taking an odd attitude towards the protest, threats have been made against those distributing our leaflets which we strongly condemn as being a violation of our right of freedom of speech. They are also attempting to prevent students from entering the occupation, again violating rights of freedom of association and protest. There has however been talk of some progress in our demands. Anyone who can, please come down to the occupation to voice your protest over this treatment which we deem to be massively hypocritical for an institution which claims to stand for critical thinking and freedom. We've also been told that the Union is likely to pass a motion allowing food into the building which is good news. There have also been visits by sympathetic academics and there are currently two police officers outside the doors.
P.S Anyone who can't make it to the occupation please ring or email the vice chancellor voicing your opposition to university tactics and support for the students in occupation. Be polite, but firm. Vice Chancellor: +44 (0)1603 592206 or firstname.lastname@example.org
