Following a large demonstration against the suspension of the Sussex 6, hundreds of students have staged a snap occupation in defiance of management and the state, following the granting of a High Court injunction banning ‘occupational protest.’
The injunction is based on the testimony of John Duffy , who claimed students had taken hostages members of staff during an occupation of Sussex House last week, a claim vehemently disputed by eye witnesses. Despite the heavy police presence, no charges have been brought for hostage taking or any other offences.
Update: The occupation has now moved to a lecture theatre, defying the High Court injunction and demanding VCEG come and collect the petition for the reinstatement of the Sussex 6.
WE ARE THE CRISIS!
