Parents occupy South London primary school

Posted by Left Luggage on April 23, 2009

The spirit of the Glasgow school occupation and the Visteon workers has spread and parents of children at Lewisham Bridge School in South London have occupied the roof of the school in protest at its closure.

You can read about the background here. There is also a facebook group.

Parents involved in the occupation would really appreciate any visits to the school or anyone who can do shifts on the roof. The BBC, Evening Standard and others have already been down to cover the occupation.

There will be a public meeting outside the school tomorrow (Friday 24/4) at 3.30pm. The school is on Elmira Street, Lewisham, SE13 7BN. A map can be found here. Messages of support can be put on the facebook group and sent to handsofflewishambridge@yahoo.co.uk.

We fully support the parents involved in this protest and wish them every success.
