Occupy Essex University

40 students occupied the Lecture Theatre Building at the Colchester campus this evening, after 6pm in solidarity with the 3 million workers striking in the public sector on November 30th.

Students are also occupying in defiance of the University’s decision to privatize the internet services in its campus accommodation and make massive cuts to cleaning services.

The occupiers also state they are fighting for free education and are fundamentally opposed to the Government’s White Paper.
