The British Medical Journal has published an extraordinary editorial accusing Boris Johnson’s Conservative government of the “politicisation”, “corruption,” and “suppression of science”. It is an indictment of the British ruling class’ “herd immunity” response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has created a humanitarian disaster. At every stage, the government ignored scientists’ calls for a national lockdown and warnings about the dire implications of keeping open workplaces, schools, colleges and universities.
One week after students at the University of Manchester tore down fencing erected by management around Fallowfield campus, a group of around 15 taking part in a rent strike began an occupation Thursday morning. They are occupying the Owens Park Tower accommodation block in the large campus in south Manchester.
Meanwhile, hundreds of redundancies are being enforced at education institutions nationwide in connivance with the trade unions.
We urge all teachers, students and parents who want to fight these attacks to attend this Saturday’s meeting.
