Taking place all day:

Arts and Crafts:

  • Posters for room.
  • Large sign for front of lecture.
  • Posters for campus.
  • Easily photocopiable (it’s a word) materials to distribute round campus/town.

Draw up a statement of how we will act in lectures and exams (that teachers and students can read).

Find out what lectures are on in the week and encourage them to move, and if they can’t move then negotiate the maximum amount of people that can be in the room.

Clean up area and make it look as good as possible for Monday (remove tatty posters, put up better ones).

Write statement of purpose (that we’re occupying until Friday, and why, and what we’ll be doing with this space, and what we’ve already done).

    Writing in solidarity to support all students and staff enaged in the action and occupation. The next few years are critical for the future of education and public services in the UK. We must build a strong, organised and effective campaign which is broad-based and democratic, bringing in workers and communities across Britain to defeat this government. It has been done before, the anti-Poll tax campaign, and we can do it again!

    Hi, Following the vote we have to organise in order to maintain our opposition to these education ‘reforms’. There will be job losses at Exeter and people across the city will suffer because of the education and welfare cuts of this government. We need to form an Exeter education/anti-cuts group which continues the resistance on campus and beyond, focussing on education and youth but allied to the wider anti-cuts movement. Whatever we call this group it needs to be formed ASAP. It must be democratically controlled, open to all who oppose cuts and with a clear plan of action and agenda.
