Leeds Trinity difficulties – and occupation
Students at Leeds Trinity have gone into occupation again, after a brief occupation before the Christmas break. One of their objectives is to build support over the coming weeks to bolster the strength of the community in the university and the anticuts campaigns locally. They intend to organise many local events, including union rallies, protests, demonstrations, marches as well as ensure their own attendance at the national rallies.
Recent focussed redundancies at Leeds Trinity, which is to lose all of its government funding, are the cause for concern amongst staff and students there. Today, the Yorkshire Post published an article detailing the support the occupiers are receiving from Leeds Trinity staff.
The Leeds Trinity occupiers have a community information and planning session planned for Saturday the 15th of January at 3 o’clock, to be chaired by members of the occupation, similar in approach to the general meeting arranged by the University of Leeds occupiers on 27 November. The Leeds Trinity occupiers have invited local MPs including Greg Mulholland, who spoke out against and voted against the rise in tuition fees.
