World Crisis

STUDENTS OCCUPY – LIBYAN PROTEST!

***BREAKING NEWS, LSE STUDENTS HAVE OCCUPIED IN PROTEST AT  THEIR UNIVERSITY ACCEPTING MONEY FROM THE LIBYAN REGIME**

Thursday 24 February

Demonstration at the Universities UK spring meeting 2pm Woburn House, Tavistock Square, London WC1H 9HQ.

University Vice Chancellors, whose organisation Universities UK will be holding its members’ meeting this Thursday, are preparing to hike up tuition fees and make attacks on the jobs, pay and pensions of university workers, who are now being balloted for strike action.

Many of them are also complicit in the brutal repression of protestors in the Middle East: for example, the London School of Economics (LSE) Centre for Global Governance accepted a £1.5million donation from Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, now the public face of the murderous dictatorship in Libya, and many universities work closely with arms manufacturers whose weapons have been sold across the region.

We stand in solidarity with the people of countries like Tunisia, Egypt and Libya as they demand bread, freedom and dignity. Part of this is fighting for a free and publicly funded education system, without fees, cuts or dodgy deals with dictators and arms dealers. This is why we will be marching on the Vice Chancellors’ Universities UK conference on Thursday, and why we support strike action by education workers against the VCs’ attacks.
