The PGWA welcomes the announcement of the NUS national demonstration on the 21st of November 2012.
The first students to pay £9,000 fees will be starting next academic year and many of the coalition policies, including attacks on university funding, will be taking effect.
We call on the NUS postgraduate section to organise a postgraduate bloc on the demonstration and to build for the biggest possible turn out on the day.
Postgraduates that teach in higher education should be marching alongside students and lecturers to defend education on the 21st November. We will also be raising the demand: “For fair pay and academic freedom”
