National cuts protest at York Way set to grow tonight

Coalition of Resistance Against Cuts & Privatisation

The apolitical Coalition of Resistance will be joining student demonstrators at King's Place this evening to protest against cuts and privatisation in workplaces, community and welfare services. Nick Clegg is set to give the seventh Hugo Young Lecture at King's Place at 7pm.

York Way and the surrounding area is likely to be very congested indeed. Those (like me) intending to join the demonstration please remember to leave the area clear of placards etc when you finish as it is a very densely populated residential area comprising mixed private, affordable and social housing including the York Way Court Housing Estate immediately opposite King's Place. Good luck to demonstrators and residents alike this evening.

    The “apolitical” Coalition of Resistance?

    From their site: “The Con-Dems are launching an onslaught of cuts and privatisation and a vicious ideological attack on our welfare state. It is vital that wherever the Tories and their Lib-Dem lapdogs go, they are hounded and forced to face up to the widespread rage at their blanket attack on the working class movement”

    They may not be aligned with a mainstream political party – frankly they sound like a gang of nutty Trots when they talk about the “working class movement” rather than the working class – but apolitical they clearly are not.

    Anyway, hope they send in the hussars.

    It is wrong to demand that hardworking people of all clases to pay for the “further” education of others. Simple.
    Shame on students for their ignorance in shouting that socioty owes them everything when they haven’t even put anything in. Get a job, and be responsible for your own actions and asperations in life. Like I and all the other people who have to work. And don’t have time to protest against these disgraceful idiology.

    Sorry David, only if there is no such thing as society does the population as a whole benefit not from having a well educated citizenry. The benefit of a degree to an individual’s earnings over a lifetime may not be that great. The benefit of graduates to the country (they are teachers, administrators, medical staff) is invaluable.
