Students are revolting: The spirit of ’68 is reawakening… it’s quite sympathetic, and I personally am glad these occupations are finally getting national attention.
Update on what Warwick have been doing post sit-in: lots! The focus has been on three main sections.
- We have been meeting up regularly to discuss what to talk about in the upcoming discussion with the university – what to focus on, what to specify, where we can collaborate etc.
- Groups have been breaking off to tackle specific aims e.g. getting aid out to Gaza – this is making some pretty good headway!
- We have been conversing with other universities and national media to try and formulate a truly national movement with some pretty hefty political clout. Going to conferences, phone calls, e-mail lists… we’re trying to not lose the momentum that the recent wave of occupations has inspired!
As always, keep your eyes peeled and your ears to the ground…
