On Wednesday 22 January, students in London have organised a “March on Senate House” to put pressure on the management of the University of London to grant the demands of the “3 Cosas” strikers (outsourced workers), and to support the pay claim of higher education workers in their national dispute.
Students are also demanding that their organisation, the University of London Union, is not disbanded, as the university’s management currently proposes to do.
This demonstration comes after a series of student rallies in solidarity with workers’ strikes last term, which were subject to violent and overwhelming police brutality.
Students, staff and supporters should join the rally at University of London Union, Malet Street, at 1pm on 22 January.
On Wednesday 29 January, students from activist groups across the UK will attend a national meeting and demonstration in Birmingham University, called by Birmingham Defend Education, Sussex Against Privatisation, and the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts.
We will be protesting against Birmingham University management using an injunction to ban student protests and to discuss and plan the next steps in the national student movement.
Meet at University of Birmingham Guild at 10am on 29 January.
