The strikes, which are taking place 14 to 18 Feb, 21 & 22 Feb, 28 Feb, and 1 & 2 March, have received widespread support from staff and students alike, with a large turnout at picket lines over the first two days.

“It’s a shame that the picket lines are cancelled because they’re a vital part of the strikes,” said one anonymous student. “However, hopefully it means that there’ll be an even larger turnout on Friday.”

Physical picket lines are forecast to return on Friday February 18. For updates on the situation, check @lancsolidarity on Twitter.
