National Assembly planning meeting

6pm, London School of Economics
Some of the most exciting moments in the movement against cuts and fees have been the General Assemblies hosted in the occupations bringing university, college and school students together with workers and other activists from across their cities. Over 300 people attended the Assembly in Cambridge, involving a huge section of the town’s trade union movement from 13-year-old school students to the “Grandparents Against the Cuts”.
Other inspiring General Assemblies have been held in cities including Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle, Sheffield and Brighton. Now the Manchester University occupiers have called to kick-start the new year in style with a national General Assembly in January. A first planning meeting has been organised this Friday to discuss this proposal, as well as the future of the movement after Thursday’s vote.
The meeting is open to students, workers and “all those involved in our movement”. We encourage Education Activist Network supporters to give up a bit of their Friday night and get involved in this important debate.

    Keep me posted guys and keep up the good work, todays votes 323 for and 302 against gives a majority of 51.68% from 625 votes (323/625). This is hardly a majority, my labour MP has advised all labour MP’s voted against the tuition fees.
    I guess we need a partition, the scouts did it for “stop the rain tax” and it worked for them.
    Do I just turn up tomorrow night at Roscoe Building for the meeting, I can probably get their in the evening after work.
