Parents have today occupied Wyndford and St Gregories primary.
In response to the councils threat to close 25 primaries and nurseries parents today took matters into their own hands and took possession of the schools.
At first police were threatening to use force to enter the building, secured shut by the parents, and to bodily remove them. However the large presence of supportive parents outside the school certainly dissuaded them from that course of action.
There will be a demonstration in support of the occupation at midday tomorrow.
People are also needed to put in shifts at the occupation.
The threat of closure of these schools affects all of us not just the parents and kids. It is a direct attack on all our communities.
See you there!
