UCU has called a national day of action in support of the Lambeth College strike tomorrow (25th June). Here are some things you can do to help and show your solidarity.
1. Organise a lunchtime meeting or rally in support of the Lambeth College strikers. We have already heard of many colleges organising rallies but would love to hear of more! Tweet pictures to @Lambethstrike with the hashtag #WesupportLambethUCU
2, Add to the UCU Wall of Support. Print out the poster of support in the link above, take a picture of yourself holding it and post it on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #IsupportLambethUCU. If you don’t have access to a printer, a handwritten sign of support will work well too!
3. Change your profile picture on Facebook and Twitter to the picture at the top of this post. This will help raise awareness of our cause.
4. If you haven’t signed the online petition in support of the strike, you can do this here. We’ve already got nearly 1,700 names on there, plus thousands more from our picket lines!
5. Donate to the branch’s strike fund. We have been inundated with donations so far and your support helps the strike stay strong .
We have been completely overwhelmed by the support we have had so far, from students, people in the community, other union branches and the wider public. With your help we can win!
