SCA Occupy Shutdown

The 65-day long occupation of the Sydney College of the Arts offices has come to an end as police and security guards stormed the building at 6.45am this morning, dragging half-sleeping protesters out and evicting them from the site.
The occupiers had been protesting against the closure of the arts school on this site and against the ongoing commercialization of the University of Sydney, which they claim is to the detriment not only of the arts school but also of the equity of access to tertiary education by all students no matter of their background. Despite today's raid, the students are determined to continue their protest.
These images are part of a series of portraits which, given the events of this morning, unfortunately remains unfinished.
