Students join Lambeth walkout

James Ivens, Lambeth Socialist Party

Striking teachers at Lambeth College were backed up by some of their students walking out on 9 December.

The two-day stoppage took place during an Ofsted inspection - an unprecedented move for staff at the south London college. Inspectors have reportedly asked managers why they failed to resolve the dispute before the assessment.

Members of the University and College Union (UCU) have been fighting severe attacks on pay and conditions. Teachers announced a programme of escalating action at the end of November.

The latest strike follows a one-day walkout the week before, with three days planned from 15 December.

Around 15 students of English as a Second or Other Language (Esol) joined pickets at the Brixton site. Esol is one of the FE college's chief money-spinners, and strikers in the department have been particularly solid.

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.
