Statement sent to management on Thursday evening
We started this occupation with the intention of securing practical improvements for Palestinians in Gaza. For this purpose we provided six demands, four of which related specifically to Gaza.At this time you have not met any of those demands, except to provide a statement that bears no true relevance to the situation in Palestine.For this reason we have made the decision to remain in occupation until we feel - as a collective - that these demands are met to our satisfaction through mutual negotiations.We have been in regular and are in continuous communication with numerous media outlets. These include ITV, Radio Sheffield, Sheffield Telegraph, The Star, Hallam FM, Rotherham FM and Indymedia who are all fully aware of the current situation.We look forward to constructive and productive negotiations tomorrow morning as per your statement.
