London students fight union closure plan
Around 100 students gathered outside University of London Union (ULU) on 22 May in protest against the closure of the facility.
The university management want to replace ULU with a management-run, commercialised 'student services centre'.
No student has been involved in this decision.
Management have spun the lie that ULU is too expensive to run. Yet most of the university's £800,000 annual grant is paid back by ULU in rent.
There is a big mood to fight this attack among London students, who know this is an attack on student democracy and the ability to fight and organise against the further cuts and privatisation to come across the 18 University of London colleges.
