Demonstrate Against the Education Cuts

University and College UnionImage via Wikipedia
On 10th November in London the University and College Union are holding a joint demonstration with the National Union of Students to put pressure on the coalition government concerning the cuts in higher education: details here. Given the publication of the Browne report last week and the up-coming Comprehensive Spending Review this coming week it is essential that there is as large a turnout as possible for this march. Only by means of a show of strength such as a big march can we signal that we do not accept the positions of Browne and that we wish to defend higher education. The threats to higher education set out in Browne are real enough but when the figures currently being indicated as forthcoming from the spending review are added we are looking at the worse possible outcome. Higher education is threatened in a manner not seen even during the years of Thatcher: please come along and persuade others to do so also.
