Anarchists Occupy Richard Roberts

Strike supporters stage overnight occupation

Students have occupied the Richard Roberts building overnight – in support of the strikes by University staff.

Following a rally outside the Students’ Union at 6pm last night, strike supporters moved to Richard Roberts to occupy the building. It is believed that the building will remain closed for all of today.

Members of the autonomous student network came out in support of the strikes, with some in balaclavas entering the building. They are stopping any lecturers or students who wish to enter.
