At about 9pm the university closed the doors of the occupation not
allowing anyone to go in any more. A statement from the university was
distributed inside stating that the occupiers were trespassing (but of

present at the CUSU (student union) meeting where motions relating to
the occupation were discussed.

The university authorities said that for the moment those present
within the law faculty will not be forcibly evicted, until tomorrow
morning at least. All are urged to write to their representatives
(MPs, councilors, union representatives) to drum up support for the
occupation and its demands. The only clear indication from those
inside the occupation is GAZA IS STILL THE ISSUE. So please do not
forget to mention the actual demands when showing solidarity, and
complaining about the treatment of free expression, association and

The struggle continues until the demands are met -- inside and outside
the occupation!
