Students at Leeds Trinity re-occupy

Leeds Trinity University College (LTUC) students went back into occupation this week. The campaign in general is designed to oppose all cuts, especially at LTUC where severe funding cuts are taking place.

Andy Smith, Leeds Trinity Socialist Students

Following the previous occupation in December, people are engaging very quickly with the tasks in hand.

We've received much greater press coverage this time around, with an interview almost as soon as we re-occupied with BBC Radio Leeds' Richard Edwards on the Drivetime evening show. This perked everybody up and caused some excitement and nerves as it was carried out live.

We will be marching in Leeds on 11 January to tell the Con-Dems that these issues are not going to go away and that college and university students are determined to see this campaign through until the government is forced to listen.

The tactics shown so far by the government do not deter protesters and will not stop the campaign demanding what is right. Students have led the way in demonstrating against the cuts so far, and the unions are beginning to fight back.

Students are out in force protesting and organising throughout the country. They are getting involved and they are planning - they are certainly not the 'apathetic layabouts' portrayed by the right wing media.

A major point of our occupation and every other protest and demonstration that has taken place is to change this situation and to give a voice to people who thought they would be ignored. We fully intend to do just that and inspire others on campus to join with us.
