Yesterday’s student strike and march through town to Pier Head has been reported in The Guardian, where it’s the Home News lead, and in last night’s Echo, which had this:
More than 700 students of Liverpool University went on strike today in support of ten students who were disciplined for taking part in the sit-in six weeks ago.
The walk-out students joined the thousands of workers who formed the May Day march through the city culminating at a meeting at the Pier Head.
Militants picketed the Senate House and student leader Jack Straw addressed a mass meeting, while three of the disciplined students were having their appeals heard.
