Fight grows against privatisation at Sussex Uni
Jack Poole, Sussex Socialist Students
As the occupation against the privatisation of services at Sussex University enters its fifth week, momentum continues to build behind the student campaign.
A demonstration has been called for Monday 25 March, with an appeal to anyone fighting privatisation around the country to head down to Sussex to show support.
It is expected to be the biggest demonstration yet - there has been a demonstration of 700 already - with coaches coming from universities, as well as local trade unionists and campaigners from across the Sussex area.
The campaign at Sussex has gained national attention, and is leading the fightback against the privatisation of higher education. Solidarity actions and messages have been flooding in from campaigns at other universities around the country, and one from students at Linnaeus University in Sweden!
Monday's demonstration will bring the opposition to these attacks down on Sussex campus with the united message: "Stop the sell off!"
Join the demo: 25 March, 1pm, University of Sussex, Brighton BN1 9RH
Please send solidarity messages to email@example.com
