I was lucky enough to have a grant when I took my degree, which included having my fees paid for. My degree gave me vital skills which I have used throughout my working and creative life ever since. Luck is not a word I wish to use to describe what is in fact an essential. An educated population is a productive and happy one. The government's proposed economic measures will have ripples extending far further than just the lives of the students themselves. This film shows how students at SOAS have been prevented from their right to a peaceful protest. Please feel free to pass the information on so that when you ask yourself 'what am I doing?' you can answer with some assurance that you are doing something to oppose these terrible and unjust cuts.
