New streaming season SICK, TIRED, & ANGRY – UNITE! is presented by mental health/care activists Other Ways To Care. The series of four online events streams in support of current action taking place in and around colleges and university sites in the United Kingdom.
The organisers are standing in solidarity with students, staff and surrounding communities who have “long fought neoliberal managerial policies in higher education. We stand alongside rent strikes, in-house campaigns, industrial action, ASOS, marking boycotts, occupations.”
The series of films is intended to open up space for conversations about the stresses on students and workers in and the communities around higher education and includes titles that reflect those themes. Other Ways To Care say this of their events:
These are places to coalesce, vegetate, zone in, maintain, trace the shape of this moment and advance our shared fights and those we join in solidarity.Other Ways To Care
