Statement to Newcastle City Council

We are occupying this building to give voice to the people let down by their government.

People let down by
  • attacks on education.
  • attacks on public services.
  • attacks on the welfare state.
People like you, who within this building will be let down have been let down by the forthcoming redundancies.

We call on MPs to reject the Further and Higher Education (Access) Bill 2010-11 and for Liberal Democrat councillors to lobby their MPs to vote against the rise in tuition fees on Thursday.

We call on MPs to reject the Comprehensive Spending review and the Government plans for education, public services and the welfare state.

We call on all councillors, students and members of the public to support our actions and show that we are united in defending our way of life.
