An inspiration! Support the students' fight! Join the march!

[Message from Fight The Fees - students from schools, colleges and universities across Brighton]

As of 2012, our government is planning to abolish the cap on university fees, meaning universities will be able to make us pay whatever they want. Prices as high as £12,000 per year have been discussed. This means even before paying for accommodation, travel, and living expenses, we could expect to be in debt of over £30,000.We, obviously, are not very happy with this, and want your help to protest against it.

Assemble 2pm Dyke Road Park, Brighton
March through the city to the Old Steine Brighton University campus
Fight the Fees Rally:
Speakers from school students who have walked out in protest, college students organising against EMA cuts, university students fighting against fees alongside teachers, support workers and local anit-cuts campaigners. This event is part of a national day of action against fees, taking place right across the country. http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=123840244344486#!

Unanimous solidarity greetings from the Brighton Stop the Cuts Coalition delegates meeting this evening, representing over 40 trade union, community campaign groups, volunteer groups, residential groups, political parties fighting against all the cuts from right across the city! Word is spreading. Young people and working people should not be made to pay with any cuts or payment for the economic crisis caused by the rich! Fight the fees!
