Students & workers unite – EAN supports the electricians’ protest at Tate Modern
October 12, 2011 1 Comment
On Thursday morning at 6am, an EAN delegation of ten students from Le Swap Sixth Form, University of East London, SOAS, Queen Mary University, and Goldsmiths College joined the electricians’ protest at Tate Modern.
Students were well received when they spoke about their fight against the Tories, and how we have to unite to stop the cuts. Electricians are facing 35% pay cuts and have been holding weekly protests at various construction sites across London.
Students and electricians blocked the road in front of St. Paul’s Cathedral and then went on to march toward Blackfriars chanting: ‘When they say ‘cutback’, we say ‘fightback’.
Next week, the Education Activist Network will be joining up with the electricians once again.
