Leicester marches for free education

Thomas Barker, Leicester Socialist Students

Profit has no place in education. The government is intent on making ordinary people shoulder the burden of the economic crisis. It is time that we stand up and call for an end to the marketising of education!


So as part of a national day of action, people across Leicester will march for free education 31 January. The march has been organised by student groups in Leicester including Socialist Students, and is backed by Leicester trades council and teachers’ union NUT.

With the success of the student movement in Germany, as well as Syriza in Greece, it’s increasingly clear that there is an alternative to cuts, debt, and privatisation. So whether you’re fed up with low wages, extortionate rents, or crippling student debt, join the march to make your voice heard!
