"I Occupied Sussex House"

Great use of video and the internet to express solidarity and forge connections in the student movement.

'Students at Goldsmiths University produced this video in response to the suspensions of six students at Sussex university. The students at Sussex were suspended for their participation in a non-violent occupation of the main managerial building, Sussex House, on campus. In protest against the arbitrary selection of six members of a movement against cuts, a movement that includes many more, the students at Sussex started a campaign to get as many people as possible to hold a sign declaring "I Occupied Sussex House". Since the suspensions, hundreds from around the country (from Aberdeen to Brighton) have shown their solidarity.'

EXTRA: this brilliant video has just been posted on YouTube today...
