First we share excellent news that our near neighbours, Camberwell College of Arts, have gone into occupation in their Wilson Road campus! Merry Christmas Camberwell Anticuts – our solidarity to you! This week will be momentous and we hope the numbers on the street saying no to this government and its ideological austerity will far outstrip those on the original student/lecturer demo of 10th November.
Day ‘X’ – this Thursday, 9th December.
‘Day X’ – as this Thursday has been christened – is the day when Parliament will vote on increasing tuition fees to £9,000. If approved this will be the final nail in the coffin for the principle that education should be a right not a priviledge.
WE CALL OUT TO ALL south London universities, schools, colleges and workplaces to join us for a rally and feeder march from LSBU.
Assemble at Keyworth Street, 11am, Thursday 9th December – we have a sound system coming!
Before Day ‘X’ – this Wednesday, 8th December.
