National Day of Action – 23 Nov – Defend Education, Fight Privatisation!

Uncategorized

FROM THE NCAFC WEBSITE:

Following the national demonstration in London on 9 November, the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts is organising a national Day of Action on 23 November to keep the movement mobilised and step up the pressure.

Whether you’re at school, college or university, whether you think you can organise a mass walk out or occupation or a small protest, please take action alongside students across the country on this day. Trade unionists and other campaigners can support the action too.

Please post info about your local actions and plans on this event.

We are mobilising around the following:

1. EDUCATION NOT PROFIT
Scrap fees – Free education – Living grants/EMA for all – Stop the White Paper – Nationalise the universities – Tax the rich, take over the banks

2. The VC PLEDGE
We are challenging university heads to pledge not to make cuts or convert universities into profit-making companies.

3. STUDENTS AND WORKERS UNITE: SUPPORT N30
It is vital that we use this Day of Action to make solidarity with the public sector strike day on 30 November, and make links with workers in struggle on our campuses and in our towns.

What you can do:
1. Organise a local demo
2. Organise a walk out from your school or college
3. Occupy your university
4. Link up with local trade union branches to build for November 30
