The Guardian Newspaper reported today (Monday 2nd Feb) on the violent eviction of the peaceful student protesters conducted by Nottingham University Authorities. The article can be read in full here. An extract:
One student involved, who asked not to be named for fear of disciplinary action, said: “The protest was very peaceful and we said there would be no disruption to lectures taking place. But officials decided to cancel all lectures without consulting anyone.”
University managers closed the building and switched off the power supply over the weekend, before forcibly evicting students on Sunday evening.
The student claimed that some protesters had been injured as they were forcibly removed.
