In Pictures: The Student Occupation of LSE
Students at the London School of Economics have joined the domino effect of student protests around the country and in Europe. Following the example of Amsterdam, Sheffield, Warwick, Birmingham and Oxford, Occupy LSE took over the Vera Anstey Room last Tuesday night.
The student led movement is asking for a free and fairer education system. In their manifesto, Occupy LSE denounced that the university is run following a business model, converting students into consumers of education.
The representatives of the Occupy movement have organised a march for free education and workers’ rights, workshops, talks, and gathering events calling for both academics and students to begin a conversation to change the current situation.
