Students March for free education

Bath Students Against Fees and Cuts and their allies took once again to the streets of Bath for a Free Education march.

For their second action of 2015, Bath Students Against Fees and Cuts and their allies took once again to the streets of Bath for a Free Education march. The march set off from Bath Abbey, up the High Street, across George Street, down Milsom Street and ending at the benches near the bus station, where a rally was held. With over 100 students and supporters marching, chanting and banging drums, the demonstration was impossible to ignore. Not since the Occupy camp in 2011 has Bath seen so many active people campaigning for a better future, and Bath Students Against Fees and Cuts show no sign of giving up any time soon, with their numbers increasing with every action. A rally was held on the steps following the demonstration. Speakers included Dr Mike Carley from University of Bath UCU, Dominic Tristram, the Green Party candidate for Bath, Bruce Galliver, the Bath Spa Students' Union president, local guru Ray Raine and students from both Bath Spa University and University of Bath.

The rest of the meeting was about Trident, The Labour Mug, IDS, Podemos & Dave rejoining Labour when they bring back Clause 4. Dave will also donate £1000 to them if they do. Laurel suggested that we perhaps should take a lead from Frankfurt (on our demo’s). ‘Police cars set alight in anti-austerity protest at new European Central Bank headquarters in Frankfurt, officials say.’  We all agreed.

We gave them information about their NHS & what would happen if more privatisation was to go ahead. A good reception, even though the Lib Dems didn't want us to set up next to them!
