London Met Pickets

by Hesham Zakai

There are pickets outside London Metropolitan University which is joining the strikes as part of its own battle against closures.

Mark campbell, UCU rep, said “according to the government, and sections of the media, by striking today we are damaging our pupils, students, claimants, single mothers, and all hard working tax payers. The truth is the opposite. If we weren’t striking for jobs, conditions, pensions and above all public services then we really would be letting down all those that rely on the countless services we provide. There are the essential services our members deliver to millions in the face of both Tory cutbacks and media hostility. So no, we won’t take lectures from Tory privatisers and public service cutters!”
