Cops Off Campus demo and rally: Wednesday 9 December

Last week students (including some from Kingston) protesting against the working conditions of University of London staff and the closure of the University of London Union (ULU) were arrested or violently evicted from peaceful occupations. UoL is seeking to ban all student protests on its campuses for six months.

Please join us at the Cops Off Campus rally this Wednesday 9 December at ULU (Malet St, Bloomsbury) from 2pm.

Staff and students from KU will be meeting at 1pm at the Penrhyn Rd main entrance to make their way to central London for the rally.

Details on the rally here.

    Why we are on strike

     

    The main issue is pay: London lecturers’ salaries have fallen 15% since 2009. There are however many related issues:

  • Casualisation: Over 1000 zero-hours contract workers at Kingston
  • Stress
  • Privatisation
  • Job cuts
  • Gender inequality
