NUS and the University and College Union (UCU) are jointly organising a national demo, ‘Fund Our Future: Stop Education Cuts’ on Wednesday 10 November 2010, in central London.
The demo is part of our strategy to influence the Coalition Government. NUS and UCU firmly believe that education changes the lives of individuals, families and communities. Education and skills will also be key to our economic recovery.
Staff and students in further and higher education are coming together to build an unprecedented coalition to fight against the cuts that have been imposed upon our communities, as well as to resist the prospect of higher fees and increasing privatisation in education.
More information about the demo can be found on facebook and the web. If you’d like to meet other people from SI on the day then e-mail me before the day. This is one of the most important demonstrations in years. With huge cuts and radical restructuring in higher education it’s crucial that we start to take a stand and fight back now.
