#March25NDA #BoardBBQ

Tomorrow is the National Day of Action (NDA), called by the National Union of Students for students around the country to protest against the damaging changes to higher education that have been proposed by the Federal Government – students will be rallying to demand increased funding into the education sector, not less, and a fairer student income support system.

As you might be aware, the 2014 – 2015 Board of Directors have stood firmly against the deregulation of university fees, which is at the crux of the Higher Education Research Reform bill that has failed to pass in the Senate twice now. Tomorrow’s action is in part a celebration of these victories – but the fight is not over.
Your USU Board protesting cuts to education

The Board stands against deregulation because we believe in accessible education for all, regardless of upbringing or socio-economic background. It shouldn’t matter whether you are the first in your family, or come from a long dynasty of University of Sydney graduates – you should be able to seek fair and affordable education, and be supported in doing so.

This policy is cooked – so the Board will be providing a cooked sausage to students that agree as part of the NDA festivities*

Come and celebrate the second defeat of fee deregulation, enjoy a free sausage with your choice of condiment (from basic choices like tomato and barbeque), and be part of the student movement!

Time and location: Botany Lawns from 11:30-12:30pm / any left overs will be taken to Fisher Library from 12:30-1pm
