Monday 18 January: Lessons of the 2010 fee strike
Speaker: Michael Chessum, socialist activist, centrally involved in the 2010 movement, and founder member of the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts.
November and December 2010 saw mass student protests across the UK against cuts to further education and an increase of the cap on tuition fees by a Tory government.
