London Met Students' Union is hosting banner and placard making session for the 'United for Education' Demo on November 19.
Banner and Placard making materials will be provided, just bring yourself and ideas.
Why are we supporting the demo?
London Metropolitan University has been hit hard by the increase in tuition fees and the harassment of international students. Before the increase in tuition fees and the threat to deport our international students e had double the amount of students we currently have. London Met had more Black students than all the Russell Group Universities put together, today we are comparable to only five Russell Group Universities.
Tuition fees are rising and the government is forcing universities to run like businesses. Colleges have been cut to the core, with huge job losses and course closures.
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.
The government has created this crises and has ignored students and staff for too long – this has to stop.
Join us on the demo and march side by side with other students and staff to make our opposition loud and clear.
