Occupation Continues at Tremough

Students from Falmouth and Exeter are still occupying the Stannary at Tremough campus in Falmouth, after arriving yesterday and staying there through the night in protest against the planned rise in university fees and the imposition of scathing cuts to the public sector. Tents, banners and our list of demands have been put up around the area, and UCU and FXU reps have come along to discuss the plan of action with us. Workers have offered there support, with plenty of tea and biscuits going round. We are positive that we can get the university to publicly oppose the cuts, and also pressure the coalition to reverse its measures to slash the public sector and endanger the futures of our young people.

Pirate FM and BBC Cornwall have been covering the story, and we have received support from Plymouth Fight the Cuts, Right to Work, and the Plymouth TUC. By building up links with workers and other activists, we hope to create true sense of solidarity and a united movement against the coalition.
