Despite repeated calls from those of us involved in the occupation for lectures not to be cancelled in the occupation space, it was announced by security this morning that lectures from now until the end of the occupation will be cancelled.
We wish to make clear that it is not the will of the occupation to disrupt the student experience, for much of this morning lectures in the occupied space continued as normal and we occupiers sat quietly at the back of the lecture theatre. We would like this to continue so we can better engage with students on campus as well as express our unwillingness to needlessly disrupt experiences of education.
With university management looking set to continue with lecture cancellations within Lecture Theatre B in the Roscoe Building, we have decided to establis a Free School over the coming days where we can be creative, enjoy lectures from anti-cuts, anti-fees academics and debate the way forward for our movement. So come along and join the resistance!
