of our students - in particular, Performing Arts students, have
occupied the Graduate Centre at London Met in protest against the
massive cuts to courses proposed by London Met management.
They, like us, believe these massive cuts to our course portfolio -
the loss of Performing Arts, Philosophy, History, Caribbean Studies,
Trade Union Studies, .... will irreparably damage local working class
student education and the very essence of our university.
their specific university demands, but we have been asked to show some
support for their cause, which of course we are glad to do, in line
with our own policy of standing with our students when they fight to
defend their education.
In line with such solidarity we are calling for members to support the
following rally that will take place just outside the occupied areas:
WE ARE LONDON MET RALLY
THURSDAY 5th May 2011
ENTRANCE: Tower Building
Bring placards, whistles, and come to hear from the students
themselves about what they're doing and why.
Send solidarity messages of support to: email@example.com
On behalf of both UNISON and UCU Committees
