the night has come…

by occupyliverpooluniversity

it’s 22:30 and a group of many students, staff and supporters are sat here in solidarity with the workers in the Irish studies building overlooking Abercromby Square here at Liverpool university.

It’s a strange group feeling here, a mixture of both excitement at the feeling of really making a difference and anticipation for the long night ahead.

Our voices are many and far reaching and although the university may evict us from this building they cannot and will not stop the community which has been generated from this strike action and from outrage at the issues which are facing the workers everyday.

The support we have received so far has been incredible and we’d like to thank all of the groups and individuals who have provided us with food, drink and blankets for the night.

As always as a collective we send our message of solidarity to both the workers and to the other occupy movements across the country, may we all succeed in our endeavors.

Protest is a right.
