2:30pm until 4:15pm
On the 25th of October, Newham Council accepted UCL’s £1 billion proposal to build a new campus in Stratford.
This would mean demolishing Carpenters Estate, displacing hundreds of people and radically changing the area and forcing out those that live in the area through rent hikes. In short, gentrification.
Students, lecturers and residents are uniting to stop ‘the Stratford Disaster’ from going ahead. The decision makers on this are UCL Council. Come and let them know that evictions and gentrification should not be a part of our universities!
Bring noise, banners, placard, megaphones and all the things that make management shudder.
Then afterwards, at 6pm, come to the 3Cosas demo in support of the University of London cleaners:
