Labour has won in Portsmouth for the first time in nearly a hundred years. It is clear that the students of Portsmouth support the Free Education manifesto of Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party.
It is clear that under the Conservative government there is no prospect for relief of student debt or a move towards free education for all. Interest rates on student debt are going up and the government clearly intends to sell out our student debt to private companies.
Join us on the 22nd of November to rally for Free Education!
The Socialist Students Union across the country is organising these protests in support of Jeremy Corbyn's manifesto. Many other universities will be having similar protests in support of Free Education. Joining us on this day is joining students from all across the country to protest the cost of education and hope for a better future for all.
Fight for free education - make the 1% pay
Living grants for all college and university students
Stop the cuts - end austerity
Write off student debt
Abolish the TEF - fight marketisation
Tories out - Corbyn in
Fight for Socialism - for a society for the many not the few
What a fantastic weekend at Socialism 2017. Thanks to all who came and took part. Special thanks to all the regional organisers, selling tickets, organising transport, driving and helping with the flat tyre!
Special thanks as always to all the donations that helped us reach £42 000. If you haven't donated please do before the end of the campaign.
Lots of new people came and seven have joined in the region so far from Oxford, Reading, Portsmouth, Southampton and the IOW.
We now have our own district events coming up in Southampton on Sunday 3 December and Bracknell on Sunday 10 December. Look forward to seeing you all there.
