It has been 91 days since we announced the #SanctuaryStrike.
Despite our collective efforts, Sanctuary Students has refused to change its COVID-19 policy. Students have been ignored, dismissed, and threatened with legal action. We cannot allow this to continue.
The option to retain pro-bono legal representation has become available to our strikers group, and we want to give each of you the opportunity to join us.
If you are interested in joining the litigation group, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org immediately with "Litigation Group Request" in the subject line, and specify that you would like to be sent the client-sign up documents. We have also scheduled a Zoom Q&A session with the law firm representing us at 16:00 BST, Thursday 2 July, 2020. If you would like to attend this meeting, please fill out this form ASAP.
We realise that the idea of legal representation may seem scary.
We didn't want to get to this point, but Sanctuary Students has forced our hand. We hope that taking legal action will be the turning point in our strike.
If you have any questions and concerns, we will try to address them in our upcoming Q&A sessions. Please consult our Facebook page, follow us on Instagram, or visit our website for updates on the sessions. Alternatively, feel free to book a one-on-one meeting with one of the members of the #SanctuaryStrike team here.
Finally, a huge thank you to those of you who are striking with us, and everyone who has supported us along the way. You are the heart of this movement, and we are so grateful that you continue to stand with us against Sanctuary Students.
The #SanctuaryStrike Team
