Protest outside: Should The University Survive In It’s Current Form? debate…

We can’t believe that students haven’t been officially invited. What is a debate on education without students? And, why should we have to pay £10 for the non-priviledge. What sort of education are they suggesting if we have to pay even to discuss our own future?
Anyway, we are organising a protest outside it for all these and more reasons. JOIN US at 7 outside Senate Hs
Here’s the website. BUY a ticket if you like 😦
Viktoria and I were please to hear our VC,  say to us in ameeting that he is against these cuts and is in favour of investment. WE hope this is not PRIVATE investment and look forward to hearing what he has to say…
