GOLDSMITHS OCCUPATION REOPENS LIBRARY FOR STUDENTS

After negotiations today, Goldsmiths’ Senior Management Team agreed to our demand that the library be opened to students as of 9 a.m Sunday. The building shall remain open until midnight. No library staff will be working, but the whole building will be available to students for study purposes. IT services and electronic issuing and returns will also be available.

This is a victory for the occupation, which did not accept the SMT’s reasons for closing the library building to students for the entire weekend. As such we will withdraw from the library building by 12 a.m tonight. We will be issuing a more detailed statement in due course. We will continue to struggle with students and academic staff against the withdrawal of educational goods in general and against fees and cuts in Higher Education in particular. The movement continues to grow.

Solidarity to occupations everywhere,

Goldsmiths Occupation

    Ironic, given that any time I’ve used Goldsmiths library it’s been mainly filled with people chatting on their mobile phones and checking facebook. It’s great that revolution suddenly inspires such a love of books.
