Cooper goes to Birmingham

Despite the fact that no such support has ever been discussed at Royal Holloway’s General Meetings, the university’s name has been used on a petition supporting Birmingham University’s occupation.

Over one hundred students occupied Birmingham University’s corporate conference centre in protest at the injunction banning occupations and stationary protests at the university. Their demands included the abandonment of the injunction and no repercussions for students involved in the occupation.

SURHUL President, Dan Lemberger-Cooper, attended the protests at Birmingham University, despite not taking any leave from service to Royal Holloway. In addition, he announced his attendance at two meeting with the College – one with the Estates Management Committee and another with College Finance – on the same day as the Birmingham visit, despite not actually attending.
