We recently hosted our Summer Gathering at Grow Heathrow, where the local community and climate activists have occupied land in the way of a third runway. The students attending Summer Gathering used that as a base to launch actions over the next few days demanding Universities UK stand up to the fossil fuel industry and occupying Bennetton’s flagship store on Oxford Street in solidarity with the 1,134 victims of the Rana Plaza factory collapse.
