Over 70 students yesterday occupied the Admin block of University of Manchester in opposition to the cuts. Inspired by the events of the protest in London on Wednesday, the students demanded an end to the cuts and stood in solidarity with staff.
After 3 hours of occupation, a statement from the Vice Chancellor was issued and the students left the Occupation in order to better organise the next steps of the campaign. Students from the occupation are now building for the national teaching walk out on the 24th November.
