Goldsmiths Occupation

Around 40 students occupied the old Deptford Town Hall (now of course a Goldsmiths building) last Wednesday and Thurday in protest at education cuts and the proposed increase in students fees. Effigies of David Cameron and Nick Clegg were strung up on New Cross Road next to a banner saying 'Education for the Masses, not the Ruling Classes'.

For the occupiers' own account, and the messages of support they received, see here. Here's a short film showing some of the banners and chalk graffiti:
