Thanks to everyone for supporting yesterday’s fantastic turnout on our picket lines at all 3 centres and at the rally at the Clapham Centre. The support inside the college from staff and students was tremendous and the speakers at the rally talked about the attacks on our conditions, how our dispute was vital to protect other London colleges and about the Brixton sell-off and Free School. See photo’s below.
Many students were angry at the texts they had received from management saying their classes were going ahead. They joined us on the picket line giving out flyers about our strike and talking to other students about why they should support teachers.
We have received so many messages of support for our strike. Also we are in the news – we made it into the Evening Standard and Socialist Worker Please send any other articles round if you find them.
Next steps – the branch will now discuss indefinite action and further info will be sent round shortly,
