A coalition of student groups and campaigns – including the Student Assembly Against Austerity, the Young Greens and the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts - have come together to call a national demonstration on Wednesday 19 November.
The demonstration will take place under the banner of ‘FREE EDUCATION: NO FEES. NO CUTS. NO DEBT’. It will take place on Wednesday 19th November in central London. The Student Assembly Against Austerity is playing a leading role in the organisation of this demonstration, which seeks to build on the momentum of the Trades Union Congress (TUC) demonstration on Saturday October 18th.
The move marks an escalation of opposition to the government’s programme of fees and privatisation in education and will provide a spark for further action. Students are planning a wave of occupations and localised direct action alongside the demonstration in autumn term, and are also mobilising for a student bloc on the TUC demonstration on Saturday October 18th.
Nearly a hundred activists and student unionists signed an open letter calling for the demonstration.
Now the National Exec of the NUS has also voted in support of the demo
