SUNDAY: Organise for action

The recent student coordination called for general assemblies of resistance this Sunday – hosted, where possible, in the university occupations. These will be open to university, college and school students as well as workers and trade unionists to share ideas and build for the biggest possible action this Thursday when Parliament votes on tuition fees.

We would like to put details of these assemblies on our website. Please email educationactivist@googlemail.com if you are involved in organising one.

The Education Activist Network is organising a teach-in this Sunday to bring students and workers together in London.

Students in Greece show solidarity

Over 1,000 students tried to break through a police cordon to march to the British embassy in Athens, in solidarity with British students who oppose plans to increase tuition fees, and against austerity and education reforms in Greece.
