A rather modest email went out today, presumably from one of the leaders of the mighty SOAS occupation.

After nearly three weeks in the Brunei Suite, we have decided that the SOAS occupation has almost reached the end of its current stage.

During our time in occupation, the political landscape in Britain has changed dramatically. Our occupation has triggered a national wave of student occupations that have been successful in building a united student movement against fees, cuts and the abolition of EMA.

At SOAS, we have gained the support of a huge number of staff and students, and created a strong sense of a community committed to working together on the issues that face us all.

This occupation has shown itself to be a legitimate form of protest that is both effective and constructive. Management has in effect recognised this by failing to enforce a misguided school policy.

Maybe I missed the moment when a bunch of students sleeping in one of our buildings created a united student movement.
