  2. I don’t understand the point of any of what you are doing.
    “The university needs to make cuts so let’s take over a building they cannot afford to keep open, run up electricity and heating bills which the uni has too pay for and just be a general nuisance.”
    Is this your logic? Che Guevara himself would be proud.
    Maybe if you actually cared you would donate some money to your university.
    I don’t see how this helps anyone other than you and your ego, you are all the David Camerons of the future. Pretentious w**ks.

  3. Firstly, being as folk do keep harping on about the bills, the club has stood empty for a year over which time it has had the heating on the whole time and the electricity running. Also the Uni has been paying council tax on the property as empty buildings are only immune from tax for the first 6 months. So technically by occupying the building the students are making it more economical. 😛

    The university does not need to make cuts, the figures they have produced are dubious and the cuts they envision would be a dramatic step towards turning the university into a glorified technical college.

    Che Guevara has bog all to do with this and would probably object to it as it is not under the control of some ‘elite’ revolutionary vanguard. Baws to Che Guevara!

    This helps people as it opens a previously unused space for the student population and it highlights to university management that there is passionate opposition to their plans to destroy the university.

    For someone calling themselves “Voice of reason” you don’t seem to be able to reason very well as even the slightest bit of thought or investigation would have answered your questions for you. How about you pop down to the club for a cuppa and a chat. All are welcome, even those who seem to think David Cameron is left of centre…. *shakes head*

  4. That seems to be the standard response – you’re some sort of idiot who doesn’t know what they’re talking about, come down to the Hetherington, something about Tories, etc.

    I think you have to accept that there are some legitimate reasons for not supporting the occupation. Some people just don’t think it’s the right way to go about protesting against cuts and I don’t think anybody, regardless of what was said above, could argue that the occupation hasn’t cost the uni resources on some level.

    • What are these legitimate reasons Jim? What are the right ways of protesting? How can we go about ensuring that attacks on education, and other necessities of a civilised society, are stopped in their tracks?
