Within the last hour, it has emerged that the activists associated with Fossil Free QUB have ENDED their occupation of the University’s Administration, on Day 6 of the sit in.

The activists held a meeting with Senior Management today, and have agreed to end their peaceful protest.

The group have expressed their thanks to students, politicians, alumni and the media who have supported and highlighted their cause over the last week.

While the sit in was a success in drawing attention to the issues of Queen’s investments in fossil fuels, Fossil Free QUB have acknowledged that though they have won the battle, the war is not yet over.

For now though, the jubilant looking bunch are free to take a well deserved Christmas break. I’d say spirits are high in the Speakeasy.
