This is now a matter of survival - the government has threatened to close London Metropolitan University if they don't go (Link to The Independent newspaper article - http://www.independent.co.uk/news/education/education-news/london-met-warned-that-it-could-be-closed-1835511.html)
Bring banners, placards, tell everyone you know to leave work/ lectures early - this is our university, we value it highly, and the BOARD OF GOVERNORS HAVE to go. They've done enough damage already, it's time for a Fresh start for London Met!
