Free Education Demo

student demo 1

Unite Community members joined with around 150 students across the region in Leeds to march on March 6th to demand education is made free for all.

Attacks on education have hit the poorest students hardest and are leaving students saddled with an average of over £40,000 of debt.

Cutting Education Maintenance Allowance for the poorest students, tripling tuition fees and the rising costs of student housing have meant that a degree is out of the reach of the majority of students.

Students also recently occupied Nick Clegg’s constituency office in Sheffield where they set up the Free University of Sheffield.
