We have just written and sent the following email to the Vice Chancellor, Chris Brink, expressing our disappointment to his lack of reaction to our just cause and occupation. We urge you to do the same and to encourage other to send it as well to Chris.Brink@Newcastle.ac.uk.
"Dear Chris Brink,
As you are aware, the government are due to vote on the proposed increase in fees and budget cuts to Higher Education. I strongly believe that politicians should vote against these proposals, and urge you to condemn them, and to listen to the voices of your staff and students. This includes those who have recently been demonstrating against the cuts and fees, and those currently occupying the Fine Art building. Contrary to your belief, these protests are overwhelmingly representative of staff and student opinion. As Vice Chancellor, you have a responsibility to me to do what is right this University and its staff and students. Do not let us down. Do not ignore us. Do not undervalue us.
Your Sincerely,A Concerned Citizen"
We are fighting this not just for ourselves, but for everyone.
