The Sir John Cass sit in

Students at the Sir John Cass Department of Art, Media and Design have been occupying the canteen area of the Commercial Road building on city campus since Monday evening in protest at plans to axe 550 jobs at London Metropolitan University. The department is one of the worst hit at the university and students are sitting in rather than sitting back. The spirit of 1968 has been revived. Sous les pavés, la plage!


Today from 2.00 to 3.00pm Resonance Radio is broadcasting from the Sir John Cass occupation.

STOP PRESS: An injunction was served on the students shortly before the programme was due to be broadcast and the occupation ended after five days.
