On 15th November we will be assembling outside the Leslie Silver Building on Woodhouse Lane (opposite Dry Dock) for a rally in solidarity with the national demonstration in London. To us, 'Free Education' means the following:

NO FEES, NO BARRIERS
Education should be free, not locked behind expensive fees or barriers blocking access to libraries. We are calling for the abolition of tuition fees, and the re-opening of Leeds Beckett's libraries to anybody who wishes to learn

FREE FROM STATE HARASSMENT
Education can not be free if students and lecturers learn and teach in fear of persecution or deportation. We are opposing the racist Prevent agenda, deportation of students, and the government's recent moves to crack down on anti-Brexit lecturers.

LIBERATED CURRICULUM
Leeds Beckett's reading lists, much like those found throughout European universities, are chock full of pale, stale and male writers. This centring of white, European voices severely limits students' learning, and reinforces the idea that there is limited space in education for people of colour. We are calling on every department at Leeds Beckett to decolonise its curriculum and diversify its content.
