Millie Kidson writes for Liverpool’s LS Media on calls for another mass student protest:
The National Union of Students yesterday announced that it will be calling a national demo on 21st November this year.
Liam Burns gave the message, via video, at a Further Education leaders’ conference.
He 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.”
He called on students to march on the streets of London and defend their education.
