UCL open day steward heckled by protesters

by Joe Rennison

A UCL student who is out stewarding for UCL’s Open Day has told of being heckled by passing protesters.

Chandni Hindocha said that passing protesters had criticised her for being part of UCL’s Open Day, adding, “How dare you organise an open day when we’re striking.”

Hindocha said that the open day had been organised prior to the strike and thought it probably wasn’t ideal for UCL either. However, she did not seem to upset by the incident.

She said: It’s not their [the protesters] fault. They’re just passionate about what they are protesting. I don’t really care.”
