    They're happening in the law faculty on the Sidgwick Site, and if you're not in the law faculty (and maybe even if you are), they're very quiet.

    They've occupied the law faculty (or parts thereof) for a few days, disrupted some lecture timetabling, and submitted a (rather funny) list of demands to the uni. And apparently made quite a mess of the place, though I haven't seen any pics.

    Me neither. Presumably we're allowed to go and look around? It's a faculty building, after all...

    On second thoughts, I'm not sure I can be arsed.

    Totally unrelated: Did you get my questionnaire? How many replies do you have so far?

    Ah fair enough; I actually live next to the law faculty . But out of curiosity, do they consist of people affiliated with the university, or are they just "others".

    Yes, thanks

    And I have...*goes to count*...9, with a possibility of one more. Which means I'm set, with the few I got in uni last week.


    Thanks to you all, you've saved my bacon

    Afaik they must be students at the Uni - what they'd think they were doing presenting a list of demands to the uni, otherwise, I can't imagine.


    edit: does anyone else find TSR gets really confusing when you have three or four tabs open at once? Especially with PMs, which keep trying to put up their own little notification boxes. /random

    (actually, I lie, I'm not sleepy But I know I will be at 7AM tomorrow morning if I don't go to bed now. 9AM lectures really do suck when you have an hour's drive, rather than being able to roll out of bed and stagger through the town 5 mins before.

    edit: TSR whinging is so very cathartic, though)

    I walked past earlier, and I could just see a few signs in the window and not much going on inside. There was a security guard standing in the doorway who gave me a suspicious look, and I had a lecture to go to, so I didn't investigate further.

    Originally it was a mixture of people (including a woman breastfeeding a toddler, and an old dude with very long hair) but yesterday afternoon the university "removed the license" for the non-university people to be there so now they should be gone.

    Yeah, he's part of the group, though possibly not occupying. He gave a speech I think

    Multiple tabs is a way of life I often have 10 or 12 open at one time.

    Don't go to the lectures then. I miraculously managed to wake up in time for my 10am but I'm not going.
