The protest called by RtW will no longer take place at the Lib Dems’ London Region Conference this Saturday… the conference has been cancelled!

This is just one example of how the Lib Dems have been shaken by resistance to their policies of rising tuition fees, workfare and cuts.

Let’s build the resistance and keep them on the run!

Come to the Unity Forum, hosted by Right to Work Campaign, this Sunday from 11am – 4pm.

The forum will be a chance for representatives from every anti cuts campaign and trade union, everyone who is organising to resist the Con Dem’s austerity measures, to come together and discuss how to practically build a united fightback.

The event will take place at the NUJ headquarters, 308 Grays Inn road, near Kings Cross station.

A statement is attached in support of the student protests, and the demonstration called by London region UCU and Universoty of London Union (ULU) on Thursday the 9th December.
Sign, circulate widely and help gather signatures as a matter of urgency to build to widest support possible and ensure that the students are not fighting alone.

Add your name to the statement by emailing…spread this out widely

Our students are fighting to defend education for all- join them.

University of London Union and UCU London Region have called a demonstration on Thursday 9th December, the day Parliament debates the raising of the cap on tuition fees, to add support to the mass lobby of Parliament called by UCU and NUS.

The student movement has inspired all those who wish to defend education for all. If the Coalition government get away with raising tuition fees and cutting EMA it will deny access to Further and Higher Education making it the preserve of the very wealthy.

By taking to the streets in their tens of thousands, students have broken the idea that cuts are inevitable. They have exposed the government as weak and demonstrated that they can be stopped from wrecking people lives.

As student placards have stated: “We did not cause this crisis – why should we pay for it?”

We are calling upon the trades union movement and community organisations across London to come and join the students fighting for all of our futures.
