Southwark SOS Newsletter - sign up email

This week has seen a huge development in opposition to cuts both locally and nationally: students blockaded Simon Hughes’ surgery, others students at South Bank Uni occupied – and won their demands! On Wednesday hundreds of Southwark school students joined the demonstration in Whitehall.

Action this coming week:
  • everyone can do something
  • let friends/fellow students, workmates and campaigners know about these events – pass on this email, text or phone others 
  • contact everyone in your community group/union branch 
If your community/ tenants/trade union group would like to hear what Southwark SOS is all about, please contact Andrew on 0790 644 6137
