Following this great news we’ve heard more from the National Union of Journalists – the NEC voted unanimously to support our occupation and all the other student protests and occupations across the country.
Here is their statement:
‘This NEC congratulated students in Southbank and SOAS on the successful outcome of their occupations. NEC expresses its solidarity with all students continuing occupations and those who do so in the future to oppose education cuts. NEC further expresses solidarity with students and schoolchildren who demonstrated this week and those who will demonstrate on Tuesday and in the future. NEC agrees to encourage NUJ members to join in solidarity with students and schoolchildren fighting cuts and calls on our sister unions to do the same.’
