We are holding our next meeting on the Thursday the 20th of October, at 6pm in room 143, RHB
– What happened last year and what have we learned from it?
– What is happening to our education system?
– What is happening to our society?
And how do we fight back!?
Goldsmith Fights Back (http://www.goldsmithsfightsback.org.uk) is a group that has come out of the occupation movement last year. We come together in opposition to the cuts, in education and across the public sector. Education is a right for all. We act in solidarity with all those affected and all groups organising in resistance against these ideologically-motivated attacks.
We were and are heavily involved with the student movement but have also campaigned alongside local anti cuts groups like LACA (Lewisham Anti Cuts Aliance), Social Centre Plus (a squatted Social Centre on Deptford High street), and the campaign to save the New Cross library. This year we plan to broaden and escalate the struggle, working with lecturers, students, workers; and the local community.
We aim to promote radical politics, build and organise on campus for the student demonstration on November the 9th (https://www.facebook.com/#!/event.php?eid=172700659466128) and aim to practically support local strike action and picket lines on November the 30th.

Please come and get involved – our meetings are run on non-hierarchical, egalitarian and non-sectarian lines. Everybody (well…no fascists, racists or sexists please) is welcome and has an equal say. There is some agenda points as you can see below, but if there is anything you would like to discuss or if you have any ideas than we can simply add these on the day.
PS: You may have seen those ridiculous marketing slogans plastered all over London like “I’m interested if the internet is re-wiring our brains. And I volunteer for the Games”, especially the one above the library. We would like you to come up with an alternative slogan, in the same format, to take to the meeting 😉
Fuck the Olympics,
