Just a list of everything students are doing instead of going to uni during the strikes
‘Special shout out to the strikes at uni, god bless’
On day 2 of the UCU strikes at King's, the snow has discouraged many from appearing on the picket lines on campus, with turn out less than anticipated.
We took to social media to find out what people across the country are really doing instead of turning up on campus during strikes.

Accepting that it doesn't make any difference because it's not like you ever go to uni anyway
I am pretending to be outraged at strikes happening at a uni I never attend.

Reminiscing over simpler strike days
Strikes in secondary school used to be just the teachers having a day off but at uni they have parades, banners, music and dogs

Convincing your mum that, yes, strikes are real
My mum doesn’t believe that these uni strikes are real just an excuse for me not to go in ????
