|Students in Cambridge marching to defend education|
At the same time, we reject Julian Huppert MP's remarks attacking the student occupation. Whilst he has stated his public opposition to the rise in tuition fees, he seems to think that such opposition should be confined to actions which don't actually pose any real threat. He should realise that the main reason other MPs are starting to consider voting against the fees rise in this week's vote, is the huge tidal wave of action throughout the country, of which the Cambridge occupation is a shining example.
We insist that Julian Huppert sticks to his pledge to vote against the fees rise this week, and call on all other Cambridgeshire MPs to do likewise, to overturn the Coalition's plans to turn higher education into a privilege for the rich, not a right for all.
