A coalition of students and organisations has come together to call a national demonstration for free education on 19 November in central London.
Members from NCAFC, the Young Greens, SWP and The Student Assembly are organising under the banner ‘Free Education: no cuts, no fees, no debt’. The plan already has the backing of various sections of NUS.
One of the aims of the demo is to spark further action against the government’s agenda of privatisation and fees, and further combat the idea of universities being treated as businesses.
The demonstration follows up on NUS national conference passing policy on free education this year.
