Nottingham uni occupation in solidarity with strike ends

The last day of the current University and College Union (UCU) strikes, 13 March, was the last day of the Nottingham University occupation in solidarity with them.

The UCU was meeting with university bosses to discuss the strike demands that afternoon.

The current strike ballot has expired. The strikers are determined, weighing up what to do next depending on the university's response to coronavirus, and the mood of the strikers.

Nottingham University is suspending all face-to-face classes to deal with coronavirus. But many students will not have any form of teaching - except through emails and the selective one or two office hours a week - while departments transition to online teaching.

Students have been supporting the picket lines and leafleting other students to support the lecturers.

On the last day, students brought red roses for each of the pickets. A striker said students had provided food, coffee and other support during the strike.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.

We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.
