Shouldn't the SOAS raid be the beggining of a campaing against subcontracting?

What happened at SOAS is sickening - it's a golden opportunity for a campaign against subcontracting in universities &everywhere, though too: the example of solidarity to cleaner Konstantina Kuneva in Greece

solidarity to kuneva: University of Thessaloniki occupied

The news coming in are sickening: Immigration police lock in a room(!) and round up, Gestapo-style, 9 migrant workers at the School of Oriental and African Stydies. Worse even, their employing company, the dubious ISS, where directly complicent to this sick operation.

When migrant cleaner and radical syndicalist Konstantina Kuneva was attacked with acid in Greece, a strong grassroots solidarity movement did instantly rise to the challenge and through solidarity to her, developed the demand for an immediate end to subcontracting. The administration of the Aristotle University, in Thessaloniki, was occupied for weeks with the demand that subcontracting ends. The admininstration has now promised that they will seek an end to subcontracting.

Let's rise to the challenge. Solidarity to the cleaners who were rounded up (and all the rest, in constant fear of being so) means stopping the deportations, but it also means to DEMAND AN END TO SUBCONTRACTING BY ALL MEANS POSSIBLE

first they came for the cleaners...
