Having just received a phone call from Northumbria University's SU President, Adam White, I'm pleased to announce he has pledged his (and the student union's) support for our occupation.
He is involved in efforts to publicise the anti-cuts demonstrations, and will provide several stewards for tomorrow's march. These will be recognisable by their Northumbria SU hoodies.
He also denounced the previous treatment of the Newcastle Free Education Network, claiming Northumbria SU will endeavour to support the occupation as long as it remains peaceful.
He did not object to the idea of similar action being taken at Northumbria.
This is a huge boost for the Northumbria University students here, who have so far had little contact with their University.
Northumbria is one of the largest universities in the UK, with over 25,000 students.
