Take a look at what’s been happening on the picket lines this week

It’s been cold and rather wet at times out on the picket lines, we have to confess, but we’ve stood strong and joined arms across the universities in the UK, staff and students together, to protest at the disinvestment and marketisation of higher education. 

And what a week it’s been so far! We’ve attended teach outs, baked for each other, served each other tea and biscuits and hosted toddler play dates.  We’ve also had our own Solidarity Rally here on Hallam Square, had a joint strike march and rally with our colleagues from the University of Sheffield, also on strike, and attended the Sheffield Cllimate Strike rally.  Friendships have been created as stories shared on the picket lines forge new bonds of solidarity.   Here’s just a selection of pics taken from throughout this first week.
