What the Ssh! was all that about?
Last week a breakaway faction of the SU held a publicity stunt for the new Students’ Union building.
Whilst the building isn’t *quite* yet finished, it was fantastic to see so many students in attendance for something they knew nothing about!
Hopefully it’s clear to everyone that we’re very excited about moving into our (and your) new home in the new year.
Enjoy your vouchers!
We are emailing to formally share our deep concern about the treatment of the recent protests on campuses around the country, but particularly at the University of London.
We hope when reading this you will consider our longstanding views on ULU (i.e.questions over its financial/political viability), if only to appreciate the political sincerity with which we write.
In the past week, police have violently evicted, beaten, and arrested students from peaceful occupations at UoL, arresting 3/4s of the ULU sabbatical team. Elsewhere, they have attempted to recruit students to act as informers against fellow student activists in Cambridge, and attacked protests against outsourcing in Sussex. Across the country, managements are using injunctions and violence to suppress dissent.
It is our belief that the viciousness of this police response is somewhat unique in the history of British universities. Students beaten, strangled, having teeth punched out, dragged across roads, and violently bundled into vans.
Whilst we understand as Director of the LSE, you have localized pressures beyond your previous role, we just want to point to your words from 2011 about the police violence against the Occupy Wall Street movement – “It sounds melodramatic to say that democracy itself is at stake in the widespread moves to repress [the] strategy of public demonstration. But it is true. Democracy is not on its last legs; there is plenty of chance to fight back against repression and elite efforts to manage public participation. But the issue is basic. After all, democracy depends not just on voting and the rule of law but on social movements and public expressions of dissent.”With these words in mind, we are asking for your help in writing a joint letter to the senior management at UoL to call for the return of the university as a public space for students and in defence of peaceful protest. Having spent the past week watching friends get beaten up arbitrarily, having stayed up all night sat outside police stations waiting for their release (none have been charged, nor will they be – as the reasons for arrest were spurious) - the experience has been utterly demoralising. Despite this, we believe it would be a betrayal of LSESU’s history of political activism to stay silent.Best wishesJay StollGeneral SecretaryHannah RichmondActivities and DevelopmentRosie ColemanEducation OfficerAnneessa MahmoodCommunity and Welfare
