- 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 😦
