After the Student Protests – What next in the Battle against Cuts (Cardiff)
Monday, December 13 · 7:30pm – 9 pm
Shandon Lecture Theatre, Main Building, Cardiff University, Park Place (opp. Student Union Building)
“What parliament does, the streets can undo”
The student protests very nearly defeated the coalition less than six months into its rule.
MPs voted by 323 to 302 to allow fees to rise to up to £9,000 a year. A coalition majority of 80 fell to 21.
This is not the end of the protests, it is the beginning of a new phase of protest. Students, their parents and many, many workers will feel a deeper and more bitter anger after the vote.
The main protests over Margaret Thatcher’s poll tax in the 1980s and 1990 took place after the law was passed—and our side won.
Now it’s time to prepare for the next round of protests, to build for occupations, to strengthen the unity of university, college and school students—and to make links with workers, with strkes looming in the civil service, teaching and lecturing unions and others besides. Thats why Action Against Cuts Cardiff recently voted in favour of calling a Public Forum to discuss “After the Student Protests – What Next in the Battle against cuts?”
The room is booked – Monday 13th December 7.30pm Large Shandon Lecture Theatre, Main Building, Cardiff University. Put the call out to the ConDemned – all students, parents, unemployed, workers, pensioners, friends, neighbours and trade unionists etc – under attack from this Con-Dem government. Invite your friends to join and come along – Its gonna be a right royal meeting……
