Rally to save Sydney College of the Arts

October 6, 2016

On October 6, students took part in banner drops, live artwork and marches at Sydney University's Camperdown campus to save the Sydney College of the Arts.

A rally included speeches from Grant Wheeler CPSU, Alexi Glass Art Space and Clair Parrafait NTEU followed by lively march through campus to the university's Chancellory building.

The rally also offered solidarity with the student movement in South Africa, campaigning to lower fees. Students have come under attack there from the South African state.
