Sussex occupation over – for now

Reposted from defendsussex.wordpress.com

The occupiers left the conference centre at 7pm this evening, greeted by a crowd of over 100 cheering supporters.
The occupation proved its power this afternoon – we called a 200-strong demonstration, which stormed Bramber house and entered the occupation. The occupiers left in a position of enormous strength, promising more action and a continued campaign.

The 29-hour flash occupation has demonstrated to management that this campaign is capable of taking militant action in support of staff fighting against cuts and job losses, and that we are capable of mobilising huge numbers at incredibly short notice to support actions.
The campaign continues!
