Sorry, there is no page at the address /pages/your_union/campaigns/environment_and_ethics/the_living_wage_campaign/.
Thousands of students marched to parliament yesterday to call on politicians to scrap tuition fees. The demonstration attracted students from across the country, who displayed amazing placards with strong and empowering messages. Here are some of our favourites:
I should be at university right now.
Does this board make my fees look big?!
Education is not a business.
These cuts won’t heal and this debt doesn’t pay. Fight for free education.
Free education is a basic right.
Educatione is none of your business.
You can never be overdressed or overeducated.
Aren’t these placards just amazing? You can find more here.
Today at 12pm LSE students are assembling outside the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre to attend the national demonstration for free education.
The demo, organised by the Student Assembly Against Austerity, is being supported by a number of students unions and will be an excellent way to make your voice heard on the state of higher education funding today.
To find out more information about the LSE rally, please head to the Facebook event here.
Safety during these events is of utmost importance so we will be giving out information about your rights to keep with you during the protest. These will be available when we meet outside the Student Centre.
NUS have also advised that we make note of the Green & Black Cross legal helpline - 07946 541511 – for emergency independent legal advice or arrestee support.
For disabled students, the NUS Disabled Students Officer, Maddy Kirkman, is available to any disabled protester who may need support or assistance. There is a disabled block at the demo and you can find out more over on their Disabled Students demo Facebook event.
