Ramsey calls on UU to talk with ‘Occupy Coleraine’ students

SDLP Employment and Learning Spokesperson Pat Ramsey has called on the University of Ulster to engage with students who are staging a protest at their Coleraine campus.

The Foyle MLA said: “I have made contact this morning with the senior management of the University and called on them to speak with students who are currently occupying a facility in the Coleraine campus.  Reports that power and water have been switched off to the occupied area are not helpful and both sides should talk directly to one another in order to come to an agreement on the way forward.

“If students as clients of the University feel so strongly about the issue of the Common Room, then the University should be willing to enter into dialogue as to how we can end the occupation of the facility, and deliver an acceptable outcome that benefits all parties involved.  As a Member of the Employment and Learning Committee, I am offering any assistance I can to bring discussions forward.”
