9 November: Electricians and students demonstrate: stop the pay cut; defend education

Submitted by cathy n on 2 November, 2011 - 12:39

The National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts has called a demonstration, backed by the NUS, to protest against the government's privatisation and cuts agenda for Higher Education. We demand free education, funded by taxing the rich; and the withdrawal of the HE White Paper, which is a charter for profiteering in education.

The demonstration will leave from ULU on Malet Street, London, at 12pm on Wednesday November 9 and march to Trafalgar Square and then on to Moorgate. Be there!

There will be a national demonstration of electricians working in the construction industry, as part of an ongoing dispute against an across-the-board attack on conditions including a 35% pay cut for electricians working for the biggest national contractors.

Electricians will rally at the Pinnacle construction site at 22-24 Bishopsgate near Liverpool Street at 7am, then at the Shard at London Bridge at 11:30am before marching to Blackfriars at 1pm.
