On the 22nd of March 2011 the University of Glasgow tried to evict the students occupying the Hetherington Building.
This was met with considerable resistance by those within the building and a large police presence was required to keep things under control.
After this, protesters moved to the Senate Rooms to begin a new occupation. The protesters have called police actions 'heavy handed'.
We the undersigned, support the actions taken by University of Glasgow security staff and Strathclyde Police on the 22nd March 2011 in dealing with the student occupation of the Hetherington Building.
We deny that the actions taken by Strathclyde Police were ‘heavy handed’. We call for an end to the disruptive and counterproductive student occupations of University of Glasgow premises.
This petition makes no assumptions about the political, or other preferences of the undersigned, other than the statement given above.
