Brighton University's Vice Chancellor must be kicking himself. The university was on lock-down yesterday (Nov30), not out of support for the strike, but to prevent a possible occupation. Unfortunately for him, the students waited 'til the 2nd, when the uni was wide open and vulnerable again. Thirty plus occupiers are now camped out in the very public art gallery space and more are expected as the space gets established. They're protesting in solidarity with the public sector workers, against the increase in fees and the fact that the VC made noises in opposition to the White Paper to please students and staff  - and then signed a public letter to the government in support of fee increases. The uni is also targeted for their lack of transparency regarding links to dodgy private companies.

Elsewhere in the country: Aberdeen students have occupied their uni's management offices.... Unlucky UWE students have been threatened with expulsion and police-aided eviction for daring to protest in administration buildings- the occupation continues on another site... Sheffield occupations going strong....
