this is what happened today at the University of Auckland. four of us sieged the inside of Alfred Nathan House, the building which houses the vice chancellor’s office and which students are not allowed to enter, and four more students occupied the roof again. we had a rally outside, deep-frying student’s student loan documents. we did this on fee setting day to protest the fact that the university continues to chain students to a lifetime of debt by raising fees by the statutory maximum of 4% every year (and our own vice chancellor has suggested that the government deregulate fees so that they can raise them as much as they want), which locks the disenfranchised out of tertiary education by ensuring that they cannot afford to study and rack up debt.
keep spreading this. and remember that this is only what happened to the four of us. our comrades outside were being hit, shoved into walls, and dragged off fire escapes by security and police.
