The university said: ‘We are appalled to hear that Mike Weatherley was prevented from speaking on campus by a group of protestors. (They are) not our students.’
A statement on the Squatters’ Network of Brighton (And Hove Actually) website said: ‘All in all, an amazing day out!’.
Part of it said: ‘Around 50-100 students, squatters and their supporters decided that they weren’t going to let him speak.
‘He’d barely walked on to campus before he was mobbed by a chanting crowd.
‘His security and aides struggled to protect him as he fled, chased by a mob throwing eggs, tomatoes and other things.
‘With no cops in sight, people were really showing their anger.
‘Weatherley repeatedly shunned debate with any squatters before he criminalised us.
‘This is the only time he has talked in public about squatting. People tried to let their voices be heard through the Government consultation on squatting, which came out as 90% opposed to banning squatting.
‘This is why a broad range of people chased him off campus today.
‘There were students, squatters, and supporters present.’
In its statement the university added: ‘We believe that the violent disruption was led by activist protesters from outside of the university, not by our students.
Once again the scum that infest Brighton show themselves for what they are, criminal parasites. They dont like the fact that breaking into peoples houses and squatting there is being made illegal. Here’s my advice, have a wash, get a job and pay your way in the world like everyone else. These are the same people who attacked March for England and injured a ten year old girl on St Georges Day.
