We have had an excellent day of protest and have strong plans for the future. We’re currently in a meeting discussing those plans.
The space was packed today for lectures and we had a lot of new faces which was excellent and very comforting. Thanks to all who helped us out today, brought us supplies, offered help and spoke in lectures or debates.

There is also a march from Old Steine to Hove town hall on Tuesday which some students of the occupation will be attending on behalf of everyone here.
We have received solidarity messages from Naomi klein
a message from Naomi:
and Billy Bragg:
Please tell the students who are occupying the main lecture theatre of the Pavilion Parade building in Brighton that they have my support in their resistance to the coalition government’s attempt to make students pay for a crisis that has been caused by the greed and mismanagement of the financial markets.
Lastly, we would love for more people to come and support, visit and get involved. This is not only our occupation, it’s your occupation, and everyone is more than welcome to be here.

(and a lovely supporter just brought us more food!)
