New Demands

In addition to our already stated demands we release the following statement.

After 7 days in Occupation, sharing our knowledge and building for today’s second national day of action we have agree on a set of additional demands of our University. These demands are in line with our stated goals that the University should oppose education cuts and tuition fee rises but also demand changes to our University structure so that our University echoes the feelings of the student body.

We demand:

  • That all asylum seekers wishing to study at Newcastle University are treated as home students following the example set by London Metropolitan and ManchesterUniversities

  • Greater student representation in University management, thus we demand ten Newcastle students are involved with running our University, each with a vote on senate or council. In addition, that students are included in the Vice Chancellor’s meetings with academics concerning fees and cuts, due to take place in the coming weeks.

  • We demand that the University provides a large lecture theatre for a community anti-cuts coordinating assembly to take place weekly.
