After next after mass education protest, where next to defeat fees and cuts? Coordinating meeting on Monday
November 11, 2010 4 Comments
Over 50,000 students and lecturers marched this Wednesday against funding cuts, tuition fees and the abolition of EMA in the biggest education protest since Thatcher’s attempt to introduce fees was defeated in 1985. Thousands of students broke away from the official route to occupy the Tory HQ in Millbank, bringing the spirit of the French and Greek general strikes to the UK.
The protests have been an inspiration to everyone who opposes the Tory cuts. They have also provoked a vicious witch-hunt from the right-wing press, and over 50 demonstrators have already been arrested. Now our movement faces a debate on how to move forward, and an opportunity to build on Wednesday’s success and defend our education from the Con-Dem attacks.
London-wide coordinating meeting
6pm Monday 15th November
