So the occupation ended last night with a small celebration and a promise to return. Tuesday night saw a performance from the superb Jeffrey Lewis (if that doesn’t make you insanely jealous you have no taste in music) and then we rounded off with a vegan feast and an interview with some poor sod from The White Lady (St Andrew’s new and ever so slightly posh newspaper) who ended up on the receiving end of some one-sided banter (“So what do you do at the paper? Are you just the guy that wears the corduroy?”).
But this is only the beginning. We will occupy again and we will continue to do so until the university listens. So far our demands have been met with silence. After the 9th, 10th, 11th occupation, they may begin to realise that we haven’t accepted their decisions and we will not accept our university’s descent into elitism.
Love and rage,
