Austerity No!


Teach-in to build the resistance
Wednesday 16th March, 4-8pm
King’s College London, the Strand

Ten days before the NUS/UCU demonstration against tuition fees and education cuts, an Education Activist Network conference in London brought together 400 students and education workers to discuss the future of education and the movement to defend it.

Ten days before the TUC march for an alternative we will be holding a teach-in to discuss the questions facing our movement today.

Higher fees and the end of EMA are almost upon us, but the possibility of a lecturers’ strike and student action on Budget Day could reinvigorate the resistance to education cuts.

Millions are rising up against dictatorships in the Middle East, but neoliberalism in our education system has seen the LSE accept blood money from Saif Gaddafi and many universities invest in the arms trade.

The cuts will have a dramatic impact on women, ethnic minorities and LGBT students – and David Cameron’s attacks on multiculturalism are an attempt to deflect anger and divide our movement. Students have been the target of horse charges, dawn raids, pepper spray and kettling daring to protest for education. Join them, their parents and teachers as we look at how to defend our right to protest and help our movement grow.

The line up will be announced next week: expect to see strikers, occupiers, academics, journalists, politicians, authors and a video link up with the sit-in of the Wisconsin state capitol, USA.
