StC, Stop the Cuts campaign at Sussex University- a campaign that should be repeated at every university in the country to stop education cuts

At Leeds University, UCU, the Universities and Colleges Union, voted for strike action against cuts and compulsory redundancy plans made by the university management. Guess what! As a result, the university management are `reconsidering their plans'.

Sussex University management is also announcing plans for job cuts. A determined Stop the Cuts campaign is demonstarting to stop the cuts. Actions so far have included an occupation/ sit-in. Dave Hill, a former Governor of Sussex University, and Professor of Education, called for universitty workers and students across the country to take similar militant action against job cuts.
