MPs support the Camden teach-in
We haven’t even begun our ‘teach-in, yet we have already received numerous messages of support, including two from senior Members of Parliament:
CAROLINE LUCAS – LEADER OF THE GREEN PARTY AND MP FOR BRIGHTON PAVILION:
A message of support for tomorrow’s teach in:
Students are likely to be amongst those hardest hit by the coalition government’s cuts, with the Educational Maintenance Allowance being scrapped, college funding slashed and the huge hikes in university fees. Many people will be priced out of going to university – and those who do go will be saddled with huge debt. This is unacceptable for a society which values social mobility and inclusiveness. So I want to applaud you for standing up for a fair education system and for opposing cuts to other key public services. A new movement is being born and is determined to show that another world is possible – thank you for being part of that and I hope you know that you are making a real difference.
JOHN MCDONNELL – FORMER LABOUR LEADERSHIP CONTENDER AND MP FOR HAYES AND HARLINGTON:
Just a message of support and solidarity to Goldsmith’s students for their occupation and Camden school students for their sit in tomorrow.
CHERWELL SCHOOL STUDENTS UNION:
Dear students of Camden School,
We agree with your demands, and we stand in solidarity with you to
save our education.
We support your sit-in and wish you the very best.
See you on the streets!
We stand in Solidarity with you.
These messages have been extremely humbling and inspiring, and we thank you all for your support!
