Twitter: Nottingham Students Against Fees and Cuts!
Hi, I’m sending solidarity greetings to you. I’m UNISON Notts County branch convenor for adult social care and we’re facing severe cuts too. Good luck in your campaign- we need to stand together.
Well done to all of you for taking a stand. I benefitted from state funded university education and I want others to as well. I am happy to pay for that as a taxpayer. I can’t save fast enough to fund my 13 year old through uni. If the fees rise she could come out of uni with £60000+ of debt if she can go at all.
The new funding structure will see the university experience narrow to vocational courses and those seen as economically important. Humanities courses will be minimal. The value and the joy of learning and education that helps people think critically will be eroded.
Tons of love from folks here in Canada. we are following your adventures and are sending you you our solidarity. Screw those Tories, Fight To Win!
I’d just like to say well done to you for your brave stand against the government’s assault on education. I hope your occupation will be the beginning of many similar protests up and down the country and a marker in the building of a mass campaign in the Notts area to defeat the cuts.
As a member of the national steering committee of the Youth Fight for Jobs campaign, I’d like to express the solidarity of our campaign with your actions. Keep on fighting!
I send solidarity from the Nottingham branch of the socialist party.
Your sacrifice and struggle is not isolated as you know, it is part of a wide and critical battle. The more forces join together the bigger impact we can make on this government and society so please keep fighting, your efforts are widely recognised.
Best wishes and good luck, stay strong and in good health.
A message from Bulgarian students. We have been following the current situation in the UK with great interest and we sincerely admire your unity and purposefulness in the fight against tuition fee raises and the privatization of education. We would like to express our support for this endeavor. Your unfaltering and resolute actions against government policies in the field of education inspire us to continue our own fight with even more determined steps.
We are facing issues similar to your own. Currently serious cut-backs in education system finance, enforcements of private interests and criminal violation of university autonomy have been undertaken. Many institutions of higher education in Bulgaria have been forced to shut down for the winter months due to a lack of finance. Gradually the student body here began displaying our discontentment – we have organized a few protests against the government’s lunacy, but as yet without significant results. In January we plan to renew the protests and we feel ready to take more radical action in our efforts to achieve our common goal.
We, the students of Bulgaria, would like to declare our solidarity with you and your struggle. We would be happy to stay in contact with you in the future.
