Victory for suspended Sussex students

Issue No. 2203

Suspended students at Sussex university, known as the Sussex Six, won a fantastic victory when the most serious charges against them were dropped at disciplinary hearings last week.

The students had been suspended and banned from campus after occupying against cuts at the university.

They now face fines—most of them of £300.

Rachel Harger, one of the Sussex Six, told Socialist Worker, “Sussex has a history of occupations—it was a way to make our voices heard.”
