Sussex Students Occupy Library in Protest Against Falling Standards

In a statement in what they describe as a "Learn-in" manifesto, the students explained: "We believe that the recent cuts to the library epitomise the problems facing students at this university. We believe that we are entitled to a high level of education and that large seminars and few resources, either academic or material, are not going to achieve this.

We regret that this action may inconvenience library staff and we stress that this action is in opposition to the library cutbacks and redundancies perpetrated by university senior management.
A more detailed report of the occupation is found on
