Immigration & the reduction in International student visas. Open Meeting to Defend Global Education: Fighting Against the Cap

Students Not Suspects campaign.

With a draconian immigration cap being ‘consulted’ at present, and vicious cuts to higher education in the UK, it has never been more important for International students and UK/EU students to organise.
This is an open meeting hosted by Goldsmiths and LSE Students’ Unions, and the Students Not Suspects campaign, and is open to all students in London, to discuss and debate opposing the cap and cuts, and building a network to fight together… and we can only have an impact if we work in solidarity.

Bring your ideas, concerns and proposals..
Date: 18 January

Time: 17:30 – 19:00

Venue: The Underground is just beneath the Three Tuns Pub on Houghton Street, LSE, WC2A 2AE

Proposed Plan for the Meeting – TBC:

1) Introduction & Facts: about our current situation, then a Q+A

2) Union Representative: What these policies mean for our universities

3) Open Discussion: Practical Solutions and Proposals for Action

4) Break Out Session: split into groups relevant to the ideas from discussion

5) Report Back and Summary


If you have any suggestions, ideas or comments, please feel free to comment on the event wall!

We hope to see you there!
