On 24th November 2010, we will see, once more, the students take the streets in a National Walkout and Day of Protest Against Tuition Fees, called by the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts.
Over 20.000 young people across the country are predicted to attend localized walkouts and demonstrations. The event marks the beginning of an escalation of protesting actions against the proposed cuts and in defence of education.
The National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts will continue to organise students and plan future actions in order to defeat this constrictive governmental education agenda and, if necessary, bring down the government, itself.
The next day of action will take place nationally on the 30th November 2010.
The National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts stands for the following principles:
- Free Education for all
- Oppose all cuts in education funding
- Oppose all cuts in EMA
- Denouncing and condemning all institutions that at present (or in future) ban, sanction or try to intimidate their students and their students’ right to free association and organisation, as well as all victimisation of collective or individual students
- To support all non-violent forms of protest, specially school walkouts and university occupations. The NCAFC is inclusively endorsing the ongoing occupations at: School of African and Oriental Studies, University of West England, University of Sussex, University of Plymouth, Royal Holloway and Manchester Metropolitan University
