‘Sir’ Keir Starmer has predictably thrown students under the bus by finally scrapping his pledge to abolish tuition fees. We demand free and high-quality education for all, by expropriating the wealth of the bosses.
As inflation sores universities are claiming they are struggling financially. Rather than cutting the bloated wages of management, bosses are looking for any other financial solution. Of course, this comes at the cost of students and staff. In the latest attack on our education, university bosses are looking to get philanthropic donations from the ultra wealthy. However, there is no such thing as a free lunch. This will further damage universities and broaden the class divide.
International students have been caught up in the Tories’ cynical culture war, as this myopic government looks to bring down immigration numbers. Only by kicking capitalism off our campuses can we provide free, high-quality education for all.
With the class struggle sharpening, the Tories are reaching for every tool at their disposal to divide workers. To this end, the government is dusting-off its ‘Prevent’ programme once again. Workers and youth must fight their racist fear-mongering.
Following disturbing scenes of racist violence in Merseyside recently, anti-fascist activists mobilised a strong counter-demo in Rotherham last Saturday, stopping the far right in their tracks. This shows the potential power of workers’ unity.
As the cost of living continues to spiral, undergraduate students are set to receive a measly 2.8% ‘increase’ in their maintenance loans in the next academic year – a real-terms cut. Students and staff must unite and fight for free education.
The Boluarte regime has arrested 205 students and protestors at San Marcos University in Lima, Peru. We denounce this brutal attack on the movement of workers and peasants. Down with the regime!
Marxist Student activists attended and spoke at the emergency demo called the Plataforma 12 de Octubre, in solidarity with the struggle of the workers and peasants of Peru against the oligarchic coup.
As the crisis of capitalism deepens, workers and youth are the first to suffer. Students across the country are facing worsening living conditions and seeing their quality of education drop. This year has seen a crisis of student housing begin to emerge. Without democratic control of universities by students and staff, there is no solution to this.
As the class struggle sharpens in Britain, with industrial action spreading from one sector to another, Marxist students are getting organised to build solidarity and support for striking workers. Students and workers – unite and fight!
UK campuses have been shut down over the last week by a national walkout of UCU members. The Marxist Student Federation has been active in mobilising students to offer support and solidarity. Workers and students: unite and fight!
One way to understand whether a society is progressing or regressing is to look at how it treats education.
