Two articles on the movement

Two new articles looking at the wave of occupations as a whole have come out. The independent writes:

Around the UK, thousands of students have occupied lecture theatres, offices and other buildings at more than 20 universities in sit-down protests. It seems that the spirit of 1968 has returned to the campus.

Juliette Harkin, a St. Anthony’s post-grad, journalist, and core member of our organisation writes in the Eastern Daily Press:

Young students, some of whom who have never been involved in political activism, have been moved in large numbers to express the outrage that British people feel about the mass carnage in Gaza. In doing so the myth of student apathy has been completely debunked and it looks like a new generation of activists are here to stay.
