We need to discuss what the picket will look like. Initial thoughts are that a single, large picket that can move around campuses will be more impactful that multiple, small pickets, but we are happy to hear your thoughts!
It is more than permissible to bring along a picket pup (i.e. it’s dog friendly). 😊
Please can people volunteer to help out with organising the strike days. Some key tasks are listed below, but if you can think of other things you can do, please add to them! The more of us that contribute, the less the load on each of us and the better the event.
