Education Not for Sale grows

Submitted by AWL on 1 July, 2008 - 9:36 Author: Sofie Buckland

Education Not for Sale, an anti-capitalist student alliance in which Workers' Liberty students are involved, held the first meetings of its new steering committee on 8 June. It was attended by activists and student union officers from institutions around the country, and was characterised by lively discussion on a variety of issues.

We agreed plans for an intervention in the London demonstration against George Bush, for a variety of briefings and campaign materials for activists, and how to oppose attempts by the NUS leadership to bring back their anti-democratic - but defeated - "Governance Review" under another name. We also agreed to organise a national demonstration in the autumn, mobilising student unions to fight on fees, grants and for free education in the way NUS won't.

More information soon. For minutes of the meeting and more information on ENS's campaigning, see www.free-education.org, or to get involved email education.not.for.sale@gmail.com
