It will assemble at 10am outside ULU on Malet Street and march to meet the NUS demonstration.
It will raise slogans about taxing the rich and using the wealth of the banks to fund education, free education with living grants for all and the write-off of all student debt, defending international students and supporting workers fighting for their rights on campus and beyond.
Daniel Cooper (ULU Vice President) said: “We are involved in a serious fight in higher education, the outcome of which will decide the shape of the sector for decades to come. Such a fight needs clear slogans and demands, so we are calling this feeder march to promote a sharp political alternative to the vision of education offered by the government.”
Maham Hashmi (SOAS student’s union International Officer) said: “International students are under attack from a xenophobic government using draconian immigration controls and regulations. As well as being treated as criminals, they are being used as cash-cows by universities in an increasingly unregulated fees market. The NUS demonstration needs to raise these issues clearly on November 21st. If it doesn’t, it will have further lost touch with the needs of students and its obligation to fight for our rights.”
