Uel Occupation day Eight
It's been eventful, It's been stressful.But hope is all we have left. Three delegates attended the, another education is possible, march where they networked and spoke to many other students about how they went about with their occupations and basically how to step up the organization of occupations and to build them to be stronger. We had a successful film viewing of 'not in our name' directed by Phill Maxwell. Where we had a question and answers session with the director. We learnt that this film was made over a six year period and showed images of how people expressed they're opinions about war through creativity and art.We had two speakers from "The friends of CAIS MALOKA" who talked about helping others "Build the international school for bottom-up organising". All in it's been a positive day apart from the minor set back in the morning. One of our achievements today was, obtaining new support from the student body, it helps us to work harder knowing that people are slowly realising why this occupation needs to carry on building. p.s well done to LCC for occupying and achieving what they did our delegates were very interested when vising this university and happy that they had made a difference.
