by occupyliverpooluniversity

After an uncomfortable night’s sleep and a 7.30 start, the building has been tidied and a schedule of the events with some guest speakers for the day has been devised. 

We will be hosting a series of talks throughout the day with the provisional running order:

12:00 – Brainstorming about activism & social movements on campus and in Liverpool

13;00 – BREAK

13:30 – Radical/alternative education

14:30 – European trade union movement

15:30 – BREAK

16:00 – Women & the social movement

17:00 – Extreme energy & climate change

18.00 – BREAK

18.30 – Quebec student movement

19.30 – Film screening (Film TBA)

We’ve been showing our support to the university workers on strike and encouraging students and academic staff not to cross the picket line in solidarity, and we will continue to do so throughout the day.

We’ve continued to receive fantastic support from people and have consistently received plenty of food, drink and bedding through the window which we are incredibly grateful for.
