As of [last night], students are occupying the Senior Common Room at the University of Ulster (Coleraine), which is slated to be closed down and replaced with a private dining room for the exclusive use of Pro Vice-Chancellor Richard Barnett and his [word redacted, replaced with ‘associates’]. The SCR is the last public non-commercialized space — open to students, staff, and any number of organizations — on the campus. Students are protesting in solidarity with UCU, which is striking tomorrow (Tues 12/3), and are staying put for as long as it takes. Teach-ins, workshops, film screenings, live music, etc., are being set up. Appearances later in the week by Terry Eagleton, Eamonn McCann and others are rumoured. Jump in the car (or on the train), and join us — here is your chance to Discover Northern Ireland!
