UEA occupation for Gaza ends

I have just received this note from one of the students who were occupying my university:
"Just so you know, the students in occupation have ended the occupation. This was in part, due to a barely veiled threat from the uni saying it couldn't guarantee that security wouldn't break in during the night and forcefully evict the occupation and also in part a signed letter promising negotiations over the issues and agreement over at least some of the demands. For now at least, the direct action is over and we will be presenting a petition to the VC soon."
'Agreement over some of the demands' sounds very promising! That will surely make the whole thing very worthwhile, provided it translates into action.
