Current Action at Newcastle University

Students from the Occupation at Newcastle University are currently in the newly built Kings Gate building peacefully demonstrating. This is in response to the Vice Chancellors refusal to meet with the members of the Occupation to discuss our demands. The protesters are laid on the floor in the entrance of the building with their mouths taped up, symbolizing the frustration and anger we feel at being excluded from talks about the impact that cuts to higher education will have on Newcastle University and the country.

  1. The Vice Chancellor and the Registrar are coming to Union Council tomorrow evening (5.15, Park Terrace)to take questions on the University's response to fees and cuts.

    That is to say, they were before the protest in King's Gate...
