Hundreds more students have stormed the Bramber House Building and have reinforced the continuing occupation organised by Stop the Cuts.
Socialist Student activist Claire Laker Mansfield along with other Stop the Cuts actvists called a demonstration last night in solidarity with the hundred students already occupying the conference room at Bramber House.
This morning over 200 students marched from the centre of campus to Bramber House, where occupiers cheered from the balcony above.
Socialist Student activist and occupier Sarah Wrack addressed the crowd below "we have had no sleep or access to toilets, we have occupied this room and we will stay to make management listen, they will face occupations and demonstrations everyday until they Stop the Cuts".
Peter Cecil from the UCU trade union gave support to the student protest. Claire Laker Mansfield and other speakers made the callfor more students to occupy.
Students rushed in through a side exit. Watching staff could be seen cheering students on.
