Save ULU: national demonstration Weds 13 November

Student Broad Left supports the campaign to save the University of London Union from being shut down and calls upon students to join the national demonstration on Wednesday 13 November 2013 to defend the biggest Students’ Union in Europe.

In May, the University of London announced that it was shutting down its students union – ULU – from August 2014, and replacing it with a management run services centre.

We are calling on students and activists from across the country to mobilise for a demonstration on Wednesday November 13th to fight these proposals and present an alternative vision for our campuses and our education. Assemble at 1pm.

ULU will also be running a referendum for all of its members on the future of ULU. We will be challenging University management to be bound by its outcome.
Defend student union autonomy!

The University of London has no right to shut down its students’ union. No student got a say in the decision. Under it, ULU’s iconic and vibrant campaigns – on education cuts, housing, workers’ rights and liberation – will cease, and vital activities and services will be lost.

Student unions only exist because we fight for their existence. If ULU is closed, it will send a green light to university managements all over the country that they can get away with slashing student union funding and taking over student-run services.

We want to see ULU’s building and activities continue as a student union which represents all students in London.
