Leeds Uni - The Occupation Continues!

Sedition | 23.01.2009 15:58 | University Occupations for Gaza | Free Spaces | Palestine | Workers' Movements | World

Join us!

We are still holding strong. More banners have been dropped (see photos) and leaflets have been handed out around the Union and Park Lane College.

The security say they will wait until Monday and reasess the situation. The University has come to us saying it will release a statement as soon as we leave the occupied building saying that the situation in the Middle East is indeed a tragedy and that it hopes some humanitarian and peaceful solution can be found. It will also be willing to talk about some of our other demands.

This is not enough! The statement manages to speak whilst saying nothing at all and we have no assurances that any of the demands we have made will be met.

The occupation continues...

We will be holding a meeting at 5.30pm today on "The Crisis in Gaza: Why we are occupying and why the ceasefire is not a solution."

We will also be holding a film showing at 8pm.

The building is secure and people can come and go as they please. We urge everyone to come along and join us! We expect many more arrivals tomorrow as workers finish for the weekend and the local demonstration occurs!
