People from all around the country will be gathering, and we'll be discussing strategies, sharing our tips and experiences with each other, and putting on some 🔥🔥🔥 training workshops!

It's a great opportunity to meet comrades who are fighting the same fight, get a morale boost and some pro tips!

National Day of Action

National Day of Action

CLICK GOING HERE TO STAY UPDATED
Higher education is in a crisis. Over the past decade, the project of marketisation in our universities has expanded rapidly - fees have been tripled, devastating cuts have been implemented and rents have been hiked to disgusting levels.

In response to this, students have set up tenants' unions, occupied university buildings, disrupted open days, gone on rent strike and generally f u c k e d s h i t u p in protest of the exploitative and ridiculously high rents they have to pay whilst living in shit conditions.

Therefore, on 6th March 2019, we've called a national day of action against the student housing crisis, against the rent we have to pay, against the dire conditions we're forced to live in, against our universities who have exploited and attacked us.
We encourage students on every campus, whether you have an active housing activism group or not, to take action with us on this day, and show our universities we will not just sit back and take this.

We'll keep this description updated with campuses participating and contacts for those campuses for anyone wanting to get involved. If you're planning something, please send us a message so we can direct any relevant people your way!
