Manchester University is apparently forcefully trying to remove the students in occupation of a room there, having called the police to the site. We’re not sure what the justfication they’re using is… it has always seemed to us that people reserve the right to peaceful protest to promote their viewpoint when the status quo fails- when that right is attempted to be removed under the pretext of law, the law ends being a means towards justice, but becomes an end in itself, with no benefit for those that are bound to follow it.
This is the statement by the Manchester students under occupation that can be found here. As they say, contact the Manchester University and police if you can.
THE UNIVERSITY ARE TRYING TO REMOVE THE STUDENTS IN OCCUPATION, THERE IS A DEMO OUTSIDE TO SUPPORT THEM, PLEASE COME AND JOIN THE PEACEFUL DEMO OUTSIDE!!!!!
