Hi all, here's the comedian Mark Steel speaking at a demo today at Sussex University in the UK, where an occupation against privatisation and outsourcing plans by students of a conference hall in a university building has been going on since last Wednesday. He manages to be both funny and on point when describing the politics of Cameron's Britain and the managerial cadres who are carrying out the destruction of the education system in the UK. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=yLAQHg5jUIwThe facebook page for the occupation is here: http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/Occupy-Sussex/298629560259092And here's some links with more info: http://www.independent.co.uk/student/news/students-occupy-sussex-university-in-protest-against-service-selloff-8487055.html, http://www.independent.co.uk/student/news/sussex-student-protest-gathers-momentum-as-peter-capaldi-caroline-lucas-and-tariq-ali-offer-support-8490572.html, http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/as-the-sussex-uni-occupation-shows-government-may-see-education-as-a-market-but-students-do-not-8488719.html, If you can, please consider sending messages of support and solidarity to the students, the website for the campaign is here, with contact details and further info. http://sussexagainstprivatization.wordpress.com/2013/02/08/statement-from-sussex-occupiers-against-privatisation/Thanks.
