Subject: Stop the Lambeth College Brixton Sell-Off!Dear friends and contacts
The centre where I work at college is being sold off to private developers! And there are plans to sell off more of the college later next year too. The Brixton centre where I work puts on courses for students with learning diffculties and disabilities, for young people who have not engaged with school education and for people who don't have English as their first language.
These are exactly the type of students that Further Education is meant for. People who need a second chance, who are disabled, unemployed or on very low-paid jobs for whom education is a way out of a difficult situation.
I think it's dangerous and irresponsible to reduce Further Education at a time when 1 million young people are unemployed and over 60% of young black men are unemployed. This is more true in south London boroughs such as Lambeth where these figures are even higher.
Of course a petition isn't going to change things on its own but when we go into meetings with management over the coming weeks and we know, and they know, that we have 1000 people backing us, publicly, then they are much more likely to take notice of what we say to them.Lee Jasper and comedian Jeremy Hardy have signed!
Please support our campaign and sign the petition and also send the email fromchange.org to all your contacts. Anyone who supports the campaign can sign the petition, friends, family, students, etc;
