A Successful Start

After a slow beginning, this occupation is well and truely up and running. The messages of support we have received have been heartwarming, and the students we have spoken to really seem positive about this movement. We had a sudden media storm about an hour ago, when the BBC, STV, and various local papers all came at once. This was obviously brilliant but our undying respect must go to David, a photographer with The Courier who had two hours kip before running out to meet us at 7 in the morning.

So the mood is optimistic, and while I’m sure many people will sneak out to the Jeffrey Lewis gig later, people seem set for staying the night. Thanks again for your support
