The High Court has today (14 April 2015) instructed OccupyUAL to end their sit-in at University of the Arts London. The Court granted an injunction which prohibits further unlawful trespass of any of our sites.

Nigel Carrington, Vice-Chancellor at University of the Arts London, said: “It is a great shame that the protest had to be resolved in this manner, but we had tried for nearly four weeks without success to negotiate with OccupyUAL.

“Legal action was our last resort to protect the interests of the overwhelming majority of our students and staff and prevent further disruption as we head into the all-important summer term.

“The University remains committed to freedom of speech, freedom of expression and peaceful assembly within the law.”
