The Newcastle occupation has taken on a bit of carnival atmosphere tonight, with students holding impromptu acoustic sessions, juggling and generally enjoying the mood of rebellion.
Earlier problems with security have died down as the night settles in. Security had attempted to prevent people joining the occupation and this had created some friction between the groups. Fortunately this tension has passed and people are once again able to join the occupation. This has lighten the mood greatly, and the addition of a local band coming down in solidarity to play cheered us greatly.
Messages of solidarity are always welcome. We won't win this on our own.
Solidarity with all other occupying students.
