The UTS Occupier: Journal of the UTS Easter Occupation
UTS Easter Occupation, Sydney, 23 April 1997, 36 pp

On 26 March, 2007, students began a three-day occupation of the administration block at the University of Technology, Sydney, before being evicted by over 100 riot police and police dogs. This newspaper is a rare document providing an excellent account of the action and its aftermath in a year during which there were 16 similar university occupations. Note that some of the articles incorrectly date the occupation from 26 April.
