06-01-2011 16:22The vote on tuition fees passed, but thanks to our protests, almost didn't. Scrapping EMA is far more controversial than scrapping tuition fees - we can stop this happening, all we have to do is make some noise and show that we care. Assemble with us at 11am by the fountains, and show this government that Bristol will not be silent when the rich threaten our education!
Update - planning taking place on HMG Ministry of Resistance discussion tab, so it can be more democratic. Please post ideas and suggestions there!
Note - some groups have reported that there is a vote parliament about EMA on this day (http://anticuts.com/2010/12/23/save-ema-parliament-vote...uary/). This is not the case.

Time Tuesday, January 11 · 11:00am - 2:00pm
