On the 7th of February the SOAS Chinese department invited us to celebrate Chinese New Year. There was great food, entertainment and everyone really committed to the theme. The performers, front of house and MC’s all incorporated red into their outfits and props. Some went for a more traditional look whereas others reworked traditional elements into their outfits.
SOAS UCU strikes
Early morning and the picket lines are already staffed. Even though it was cold, everyone was layering up in comfy layers, turtlenecks, fleece and puffer jackets. The choice of footwear were trainers and Dr. Martens. Strikers and picketers were passing out leaflets with the dates for rallies and panel talks whilst discussing the issues surrounding the strikes.
