The Scottish Campaign Against Fees and Cuts will hold its inaugural conference on the weekend of 15-16 October in Ochil Room, Pleasance, Edinburgh.

The Tory-led government at Westminster are now attempting to force through an education white paper that opens the way for full scale privatisation of higher education.
We cannot allow this to happen.
