Solidarity from Goldsmiths University

Goldsmiths University have shown solidarity with the Occupy Movement, here is their statement:

“Goldsmiths is now in solidarity with the UK-wide strike on November 30th and the global Occupy movement. We are here because we reject the privatisation of the university, symptomatic of the neo-liberal agenda that permeates all aspects of life. For this reason, we have strategically occupied the building housing Goldsmiths’ finance offices responsible for executing the cuts and the privatisation agenda. This building also houses the Ian Gulland lecture theatre. Lectures can go ahead as planned on the condition that they are open to the public. All groups on and off-campus are encouraged to use this space to host meetings, events, and planning sessions for actions on November 30th.

Where the current government agenda not only encourages, but enforces the transfer of public resources to private hands, we join people worldwide in taking them back!

 Programming at the occupation is open to everyone to design.”
