    As a student of the Uni i'd like to say that these people don't represent the vast majority of Sussex Students who just want to get on with their studies. This video certainly doesn't show the whole story, and yet only the end of what was a violent and disgusting protest. Some of the people protesting were not even Sussex Students. It is so sad to see that a University, especially one so well regarded as Sussex can no longer be the home for a reasoned and peaceful debate, which was Mike Weatherleys intention in coming to the campus.
    There goes all our future hopes if, as you say, the 'majority of students' won't protest when faced with with an attack on the vulnerable in our society...

    Be sure to wash that brown stain off your tongue when you run home to mummy!
    Completely void comment sbiscorrupt, students invited Mike Weatherley onto campus to have a debate and talk about it properly in a reasoned debate. Most of us are studying for our degrees and yes, that is more important to many us than the squatting law. If you believe in a 'future' in which the brightest young minds of our country violently attack people they disagree with you sir, are very very confused. Peaceful discussion is the way forward, these people were throwing rocks and many of them were not even students, they put many of our students and staff at risk. So stop your nonsense about brown tongues and keep your ridiculous interpretations on events to yourself.
    That's the spirit....get worked up about something!

    I assume you aren't studying history, as if you were you might happen to notice that many of our current 'leaders' took part in demonstrations...

    Many became the establishment, but some did some good along the way...

    But if you think 'peaceful discussion' is the only way, then I guess you condemn every revolution that has ever happened...
    I do in fact study History, and am aware of that vague yet correct in part statement. Yet whilst i am also in support of demonstrations of almost every kind, the actual debate has to come first and those demos should be peaceful and get the points across well. Denying students the chance to get involved in the discussion is not rational, it's just upsetting. Furthermore i said that peace is the way forward, yes i do actually believe in peace. I have also studied the French and Russian revolutions extensively and can, without any doubt, state that this small violent protest has nothing to do with such incredible events whatsoever. You sound extremely ignorant of such things so i refuse to give you the honour of replying to your vacuous comments anymore. There's debate, and then there's throwing stuff, not many reasoned people are for the latter.
    oh well...

    Maybe that old statement is correct after all...

    "What we learn from history is that we don't learn from history"...

    So you go and get upset if it helps...

    And then think of that when your expensive education ends up costing you far more than you are able to comprehend right now...

    But sadly the people who Weatherley has condemned don't have that luxury do they!"
