#19Nov: United for Education Demo

#19Nov: United for Education Demo

Sat 19 Nov 2016 09:00 - Sun 20 Nov 2016 18:00

RUSU is providing subsidised £10 return transport for the demo – make sure you buy your coach ticket now as spaces are limited!

***Tickets can be bought in person on the day from 9:30am in Car Park 4. Please bring exact cash as change will not be given.***

Free, good quality education is a right for all, regardless of ability to pay.

Tuition fees are rising and the government is forcing universities to run like businesses. Students are facing higher debt than ever before with maintenance grants and NHS bursaries scrapped, student loan terms changed and tuition fees set to reach £12,000 by 2026.

We cannot sit idly by whilst education is undermined. We have to take action. Buy your tickets now to join students from Reading and around the world in marching for YOUR education.

The government has ignored students and staff for too long – this has to stop. So let’s march in our thousands and show the government we will not be ignored. Alongside our staff, we have the power to halt cuts and stop fees rising even more. Together we are a force too large to ignore.

Will you join RUSU, NUS and UCU on Saturday November 19th and March?
