SOAS occupation ends with (partial) success

17-06-2009 18:01

The SOAS occupation ended at 12.30pm today, having achieved most of what such an action could have achieved. After several rounds of intense negotiations, the occupiers and the management reached an agreement in which the management agreed to all five demands put forward by the protesters, albeit in a not-very-committing way.

In the signed document reproduced below, the management promises to “review” the immigration raid and “discuss” the possibility of bringing cleaning services in-house and the “health and safety issues” relating to immigration raids on campus. There were, however, two more concrete commitments: first, to write to the Home Office requesting the return of the deported cleaners and granting exceptional leave to remain to those who are still detained or have been forced into hiding; and second, that no action will be taken against those involved in the protest.

Update from the SOAS occupation

16-06-2009 18:46

Following a well-attended rally at 4:30, which was followed by a march round the Bloomsbury colleges, the occupiers had a long meeting to discuss their demands, some of which the director has already agreed on, while others are still being negotiated.

Just after 7pm, people were told by the management that the directors have left and negotiations will have to resume in the morning. The 'deadline' for getting back to them with the finalised demands was 7pm. Apparently they were too busy to wait for a few minutes!
