Huge solidarity to Manchester uni, who after nearly a month of creative and energetic occupation which saw them take several different rooms on their campus and despicable threats and intimidatory strategies from their VC are still going stronger than ever! The Vice Chancellor Alan Gilbert has threatened expulsion for students who are involved. They have called for a national demonstration of support at 2pm this Wednesday 4th March (see http://manunioccupa tion.wordpress. com/). This is a critical time for the occupation: please support them by sending an email to VC Allan Gilbert demanding that he negotiate with occupiers: president@mancheste r.ac.uk.
