Owen Jones, the author of ‘Chavs – the demonization of the working class’ will be speaking at the workshop on the fight for FE at the teach-in at King’s College on October 29. Here he gives his reason why everyone should come to the teach-in.
“The Tories haven’t won an election since 1992, but that hasn’t stopped them unleashing the most drastic attack on the welfare state since the Second World War. Through policies like scrapping EMA and trebling tuition fees, this government of millionaires has slammed the door in the faces of working-class kids. We need to build a mass movement that takes the Tories on – but, as students prepare to take to the streets, we need to make sure we debate the alternative. That’s why this teach-in is so important.”
