News You Might Have Missed: Week 7

By Annemiek Dols

If you were too traumatised by swooping magpies to pay attention to what was happening on campus this week, we are here to catch you up.

Activism

On Friday, students gathered in Kambri to protest inaction on climate change. They then walked to Glebe Park to participate in the Global Climate Strike. 15,000 people attended the demonstration.

Campus

The inaugural Kambri market booths were also held Friday. Products on offer included fruits and vegetables, desserts, bread, soap, and clothing. 

Students are able to operate a stall by applying on the Kambri website. The market will take place every Friday until 22 November.

Colleges and Halls of Residence

Over the break, a Residential Forum was held on campus. This forum reiterated many concerns raised at the first Forum last term, and by the strike held on ANU’s Open Day. This included the removal of the Deputy Heads of Halls, with the ANU planning to implement a new pastoral care model from 2020. Other issues discussed were consultation, transparency of spending, and occupancy contract length.
