if my uni strikes in term time I will be very very frustrated! :yep:

the right to protest is important, but the decision to deprive people of a tough, expensive, and short-lived education is abhorrent in my opinion.

I am actually glad they are striking as it means no lessons for me so I can relax after having 9am 4 times a week and a very intensive uni schedule all semester. Easy week where I don't need to stress about preparing for all my 5 tutorials that I have each week.
