On Thursday 9th December MPs will vote on increasing tuition fees.
Apparently NUS has promised to build a national day of action with a lobby of Parliament, and representatives of university occupations and campaigns have called for parents, workers and trade unionists to do everything in their power to join in.

The day before the vote On Wednesday 8th December, the Leeds Occupation are calling for a student strike and complete education shutdown in Leeds. At 12pm, we will mobilise outside Leeds Met Students Union for a day protest and action.
It is imperative that we build for these actions ASAP and plan creative and diverse actions that can be taken as part of them.
