Friday 7 February 2014 – Join us outside the Department for BIS at 2pm OR Meet on the steps of SOAS at 12noon to march down to BIS with students from Bloomsbury campuses.
As part of The Student Assembly Against Austerity’s national week of action to stop the sell-off of our student loans to private companies, students across London are uniting together to protest outside the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills by doing a ‘debt in’.
Students will be ‘crushed by debt’ in this creative protest outside the department in charge of privatising student loans.
