The National March for Free Education on Wednesday the 4thof November

Posted by Benjamin Leatham, 27/10/2015

Getting students at York to engage politically is one of my key priorities. Over the past few months we have provided you all with the opportunity to send letters to your local MP over the maintenance grant cut, engage with the #YorkIsGlobal campaign and act on the refugee crisis. Now we are providing the opportunity for you all to attend the National March for Free Education on Wednesday the 4th of November.

A £10 coach ticket to London and back has been organised by YUSU and some engaged students. I wanted to make sure it was as easy as possible for those who want to engage in a debate over the cost of University to do so. If you support free education or are interested in a debate about the changing cost of education this is a fantastic opportunity to join students across the country and lobby the government on everything from maintenance grant cuts to proposed tuition fee hikes.
