Occupy your university – Aberdeen chapter

Aberdeen Defend Education Campaign have occupied the University management offices demanding that the university principal commit to the following three points:

• To do what he can to stop lecturers and staff losing their jobs. This should include issuing a public statement in opposition to changes to the USS pension scheme and arguing publicly and within Universities Scotland against any and all cuts to Further and Higher Education budgets.
• To refuse any raises or bonuses offered to him by court and to encourage all other members of the senior management team to do the same. Further, the principal must commit to donating the money the University paid on his behalf in rent and council tax last year to the student hardship fund.
• To publicly condemn the coalition government’s agenda of cuts and privatisation of Further and Higher Education institutions as counter-productive, damaging and fundamentally opposed to the idea of public education as a beacon of the progressive values that should underpin our society.
