5) Defend Bryan Simpson. Fellow student and activist Bryan Simpson from Strathclyde University was arrested at his home in Glasgow in a dawn raid by police officers at 6am on 24th November 2010.

We send our warmest solidarity sympathies to Bryan. This intimidation of students should not be allowed to continue. We must stand up to the strong arm of the law and defend our students wherever possible. We MUST be united to defeat the government and it’s bullies in the Police.

Bryan, you are a shining example of a dedicated activist. The warm manner in which you speak to people, the way you tirelessly defend others and your commitment to so many causes should be commended and I wish you all the luck with your campaign.

Please sign the petition HERE and forward this message to your fellow students.
