Hey Guys! NUS Demo is tomorrow and it's really important that we get as many people to come on the march as possible. If you didn't already know,
the Government are planning to introduce top-up fees meaning that we could be paying as much as £10,500 for our education next year. That figure was
one suggested by Imperial College London so don't think that nothing will happen - it IS happening and we need YOUR help to make sure the bastard
Government don't get away with it.
Tickets are available from SU Reception now for the bargin price of £2 which gets you return coach travel to London, a chance to protest and then a couple of hours to hang in London should you so wish.
This demo is of more importance than any student demo before. Education is a right, not a privilege and we need to let the Government know that.
is there anywhere we can set up a political answer to this ???? should there be an online opinion poll is there one
sorreee i can't go i have one big essay to do and an essential lecture i apologise i feel reel guilty 'bout this. mind you i am not a 100% fan of direct action
too bad for those who didn't go to the NUS demo, it was quite good, except for NUS stewards links arms with police to not let students through. we
still managed to block traffic on waterloo bridge for almost an hour.
upcoming demonstrations in london:
THIS SATURDAY - support demonstration for the fire fighters.
FEB 15 - anti-war demonstration that is part of a europe wide day of action.
be there or be square.
i'd rather not, if it all the same to you
i'd rather start up another demonstration for fire fighters (i dont agree with stricks...so they havnt got my vote)
[i am not getting into a political debate on this forum - i spend enough time winding people up with the musical ones]
here is my idea
- ban smoking - the biggest cause of fire
yeah, everybody stop smoking
we can cut fires - then firefighters have nothing to do
-cant complain about not being paid enough, cause they wont have to do anything
if only everything else could be that simple
all public services should be paid shit loads more than they get ...but as you said, not enough money to go around
...which leads me to my second revoultionary idea.......cap footballers wages and give a % to nurses, firefigheters, etc....yeah that would work!
i dont agree with the strikes, because of the bully tatics that they employed.....they didnt even allow the reserve fire force to use the equipment and some fire fighters left the picquet line to help bigger fires/incidents, and they wont talk
When those fire fighters joined the fire force, they agreed to provide a public service - to save peoples lives - those lives were endangered - no money is worth that.
how are peole getting to london to support fire fighters, train? if so i have no money...how getting back when?, where?etc... more details needed.
