Dear Joshua and Christakis
The Vice-Chancellor has asked me to inform you of his deep disappointment at your response in the early hours of this morning. The amendments add very little of substance to an agreement that Professor Wright and I explained to you very carefully yesterday needed to be settled and the occupation ended last night. The additions and your intention to occupy the theatre for a further day are unacceptable.
Accordingly, I am writing to confirm the contents of a message conveyed to you by 'phone earlier this morning by Andy Jupp that, unless I have your agreement to the statement without your additions and the protest and occupation is ended by 9.00am this morning, the University will withdraw its statement, which in effect will take us back to square one.
I do hope this withdrawal will not be necessary. I should be grateful therefore if you would 'phone Andy to confirm you are willing to move forward by agreeing the statement and ending the occupation by 9.00am today.
Dr Philip K Harvey
