Statement from UEA occupation

The following is a statement release by the occupying students of UEA. I
understand that about 20 of them are occupying the Council House:

"We are occupying to support the cause of free education and in opposition

to all public sector cuts. This is a peaceful occupation and we do not

intend to damage the building or its contents. The occupation is in

solidarity with all facing increasing fees or cuts in their workplaces

and/or services. However we do not claim to represent anyone else. We also

apologise if we have interrupted or inconvenienced anyone by our actions.

The occupation is orchestrated to coincide with Aaron Porter's visit to

campus and we acknowledge his stance in favour of peaceful direct action."
