4th Day of Occupation

Day four and all are well thank you.  The level of support we have received has been overwhelming. Meetings with senior management from Falmouth and Exeter have been encouraging and signatures on petitions have made it virtually impossible to update the mailing list due to sheer volume of numbers.  More needs to be done. Please get involved in any way that you are able. We continue to be active on twitter and are massively appreciative of the support which has been generated thus far.

Thank you all

Lynsey Smith

We have mostly been planning tomorrows event, where our local MP Tory Sarah Newton is coming to campus at 3 at Tremough Library were we are going to present her with a petition which 100s of people have signed against the savage public sector cuts. Masses amounts of appreciation need to go to Lynsey Smith who started the petition and has worked so hard to get it signed by so many and to get Sarah Newton to come to campus.

Also some of us attended a guest lecture being hosted were Lib Dem MP Stephen Gilbert for Newquay and St Austell had a talk and then discussions. We then managed to get Steve to come and talk to us at our sit in. He told us to keep the protests up and continue to raise awareness. Though there was no definite answer on what his vote will be on Thursday.

In conjunction with the constituency meeting tomorrow we will be occupying the library from Saturday morning.

Overall Spirits are high and we will not submit.

    my full support was behind the falmouth occupation, although a little unorganised, things have been looking good, meetings arranged and support from the other occupations around the country etc, until today when i see posts being signed ‘FXU Labour Society Vice President’
    firstly, i question when falmouth and exter students at this campus started being represented by labour? i certainly don’t think this is an accurate reflection of a majority of students here!
    secondly, i don’t see any other occupations saying “we’re standing up against conservatives and libs so we automatically stand by labour”, that isnt the point of this at all, and i find it hard to believe you’ll maintain the same level of support from around the uk by placing a labour sticker on our university.
    as a student at the same university you’re occupying i definitely question my support while i see this occupation affiliating itself with the labour party.

    • hey, yes we do apologise for that. This occupation is un-affiliated. We are completely non-partisan. However there are many individual views within the group, and some in the labour society are heavily involved. However others including myself, that are heavily involved, are completely non-partisan. I can’t claim affiliation to any politician or party as I don’t trust or believe in any of them. This is a personal view though. However, we are glad of the labour societies support, as we are with anybody’s support. Anything relating to labour party on here has been deleted, and if not please flag up. We must all work together as much as possible, and we believe in a non-partisan way.
