Occupy everywhere: joining the dots in the student struggle

November 23rd, 2010 · posted by Fred Goodsell · marked as: Articles · resistance

After the success of the November 20th demonstration, students and workers are already gearing up for another day of mass action and walkouts, to take place on November 24th. Student activists have called for a national demonstration in London gathering in Trafalgar Square. The focus is again direct action against the government. Universities (Sussex, UWE, SOAS, and Manchester) have already gone into occupation and others will no doubt follow in the coming weeks. French students have announced plans for a solidarity demonstration at the British Embassy.

It’s cold outside – Mulled Cider and Sloe Gin

November 20th, 2010 · posted by isy · marked as: Articles · DIY sounds and images

It’s getting wintery! That means it’s time for long, windy walks in wellies, picking sloes and rosehips by the roadside and scrumping the last of the apples. At least that’s what it means for me, since two things are now different in my life: I have moved to the countryside, and I have started doing a BSc at university (meaning I am a student now, and should be rioting instead of stomping through the countryside in my wellies. But anyway.)

Refund our Future: Reflections on the invasion of Millbank Tower

November 11th, 2010 · posted by anon · marked as: Articles · resistance

During yesterday’s protest against cuts to education crowds stormed Tory headquaters. Windows where smashed and offices destroyed. As a result we can witness the capitalist system bend and buckle in its attempts to dismiss these acts of anger as illegitimate.

Amongst the 1,000s that played some role in the invasion of Millbank Tower, where workers and students from all areas of society. We condemn both the media claim that a small group of anarchist antagonists where responsible (juxtaposed by their own images showing thousands rallying around the building) as well as the notion that the students involved are part of a privileged class. The idea that working class youth are some how exempt from the desire for education is both naive and patronising.
