NUS president makes U-turn to support direct action, and occupations
NUS president Aaron Porter today did a spectacular U-turn apologising for lack of support for students taking part in the national day of action called by National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts on Wednesday. A the “spineless” lack of public support for university occupations around the country.
Porter was speaking the occupation at University College London following criticisms of him from occupiers over Twitter. Porter said: “For too long the NUS has perhaps been too cautious and too spineless about being committed to supporting student activism. Perhaps I spent too long over the last few days doing the same. I just want to apologise for my dithering in the last few days.”
