It has just come to our attention that the Nottingham University authorities have violently and brutally removed the peaceful student protesters from the lecture theater they have been occupying in solidarity with the people of Gaza. The protesters resisted peacefully by sitting down in the back of the lecture room but the security guards took no heed and proceeded to drag them out of the buiding.
Not only does this represent a draconian and vicious overreaction from the University but also raises many legal issues surrounding the forced eviction.
More details to follow.
