London on Wednesday 21 November 2012 for #demo2012!



http://www.nusconnect.org.uk/campaigns/come-clean-on-student-funding/This autumn, students and supporters will take to the streets of central London calling for a new generation of activists to set an agenda for the next general election.

Liam Burns, NUS President said, “You’ve got a lot to be angry about. You’ve had your education systematically attacked across the board by the coalition. And even if you get to the other end, what have you got to look forward to?

“Youth unemployment is at an all-time high, getting on the property ladder is next to impossible and we don’t even have the safety net of pensions to look forward to any more.

“In a year in which there are no votes in parliament and no legislation coming before politicians, it’s about time we started setting the agenda.”

If we don’t demand that politicians listen to us we’ll be ignored, so gather as many students as possible and join us in London on Wednesday 21 November 2012 for #demo2012!
