David Eastwood: To drop the disciplinary action being taken against 6 students for their involvement in peaceful protest.

This petition had 541 supporters


Six students at the University of Birmingham are being put through disciplinary procedures for their involvement in a peaceful protest between 20th and 28th November. 50+ students were involved in the occupation at the University of Birmingham among a wave of occupations at 11 other universities. These interviews are the beginning of a process which could end in expulsion for the 6 students. Not only does this involve singling out 6 individuals, an intimidation tactic condemned by unions and staff alike, but infringes on a basic human right to protest peacefully.  

57 students have already signed the below letter to show their support with the students being disciplined. Add your name to the list and declare yourself as one of the occupiers!
