Sussex University Occupied! Solidarity with the Oct 31st Strike!

Says it all in the title folks!

Once again students at Sussex university have come out in solidarity with staff struggles on their campus. Over the past year they have been waging a struggle with a united front of teaching staff, support/catering staff and students to object to on-campus privatisation. In this time they have innovated the pop-up union as a way to forge cross-union cross-trade solidarity, and have held some of the largest student demonstrations outside of London in recent years.

Words of Advice for Young People

Fitwatch, a website that offered advice to the young people involved in last week’s occupation of Tory Party HQ in London, has had it’s web hosting suspended. This came after the head of the Metropolitan Police’s “e-crime” unit (e-crime, really? Get with the times folks! Surely it should be iCrime!) wrote to informed Fitwatch’s webhost, JustHost, that the site was engaged in perverting the course of justice by “offering guidance to offenders”. Guilty until proven innocent is it eh?

So, for informational purposes only of course, we reproduce the advice given by Fitwatch after the jump. Continue reading
