Strike action at UK Universities

UNISON Union head at School of Oriental and African Studies speaks at three day Strike

I cycled past SOAS yesterday morning and realised that lecturers are striking due to changes in their pension terms.

There may have been some mention of this in the mainstream media but but it wasn’t particularly prominent.

The solidarity between students, lecturers and staff was inspiring.

I learned that in 2009 SOAS management co-operated with the Home Office who conducted clandestine dawn raids to trap and deport several of its own cleaners. The incident is referred to in a film called Limpiadores. I will share a link when I find it.
