Vice Chancellor Professor Julian Crampton invited to 9th December tuition fees protest
The Vice Chancellor of University of Brighton, Professor Julian Crampton, has been invited to join students and staff demonstrating in London on Thursday 9th December, the day the rise in tuition fees is being debated in Parliament.
In a public response to the occupiers of the Pavilion Parade university building, Professor Crampton made clear his opposition to any policy that would “significantly increase individual contributions”, claiming that it would be “damaging to the country’s economic and social development and to the success of the English university system which underpins it.”
To ensure that the Vice Chancellor has the opportunity to demonstrate his opposition to the rise in tuition fees a complimentary seat has been reserved for him (all expenses paid) on one of the coaches taking students and staff to the demonstrations.
Professor Crampton’s support of the occupiers of Pavilion Parade, by ensuring the continual presence of heating, water, electricity and security, is a mark of his commitment to the fight against the privatisation of higher education. We look forward to his presence at the demonstration on December 9th.
