Glasgow City Council voted to close 22 schools and nurseries across the city on Thursday of last week.
This was despite a brilliant campaign that saw occupations, rooftop protests, parents chained to railings, car cavalcades, lobbies of councillors’ surgeries, vigils and rallies.
Parents and carers were understandably upset at the news but are determined not to give up their fight.
This news was followed immediately by press reports that up to 34 other Glasgow schools could be up for closure over the next two years. There are plans to hold rallies involving all threatened schools. Campaigners are discussing taking the fight to the Scottish Parliament.
A meeting to discuss how to continue the campaign was to be held on Wednesday of this week.
Lewisham Bridge occupation
Parents at Lewisham Bridge primary school in south east London have been occupying the roof of the school since Thursday of last week.
They are protesting at plans to close the school and replace it with a privately controlled one.
Activists plan to lobby a council meeting that will discuss the plans on 6 May.
