Picketing - BSU Feb/March 2020
Thursday, 12th March - Big picket - let's make this the biggest yet. Start at NP gates at 8 am and then move on to Locksbrook when the traffic dies down at about 9.30 am to catch the 10 o'clock students arriving. Stay till 12. Teach-outs 2 - 4pm at the Grapes.
Friday, 13th March: Rally in Bristol, meet at the fountain in front of the Victoria Rooms 88 Queens Road, BS8 at 10.30 am as last time. Keep an eye out to make sure this is still on before travelling to Bristol - I know that several of us are planning to attend. Final teach outs 2 - 4 at the Grapes.
PICKETING - GENERAL
There is a doodle poll to sign up to here:
Once we have six official pickets, others are very welcome as visitors. In other words, six official picketers, but with supporters, the more, the merrier.
Please bring warm clothes and snacks and possibly fold-up chairs - come for as long as you can.
Consider getting a bus or cycling if possible - parking can be tricky.
We aim to picket between 8am and 12pm, at the entrances to the three sites: Newton Park, Locksbrook and Corsham Court (see the doodle poll for more details).
If you are limited in when you can come, we want as many people as possible at least to be there for the first two days.
