On Saturday 19 November the NUS and UCU have called a national demonstration under the banner of ‘United for Education’. It looks set to be the biggest demonstration in defence of education in many years.
Students and staff will march together through central London, assembling at Park Lane at 12 noon.
The further and higher education sectors face an unprecedented assault under this government. They will be marching:
- against the government’s new higher education bill that puts profits before education
- to protect the high quality further education colleges that our communities depend on
- to demand EU staff and students are allowed to continue working and studying in the UK.
They call upon all those in the Labour and trade union movement to join us to defend working class education and fight for a further and higher education that is accessible to all.
