The Defend Education group at the University of Birmingham organised a protest march on the Aston Webb building in support of the occupation of the Senate Chamber. Guild TV spoke to Simon Furse on Sunday 24th November about the occupation goals and how the university has responded to the occupants.
Since this news report was filmed the University has obtained a possession order to remove the current occupants and an injunction against unauthorised occupational protests. However, Defend Education have vowed to continue to fight for a more democratic university.
