International Students’ Campaign Day of Solidarity

Friday 2 October 2015 NUS News

Students across the country are taking part in a national walk-out day on November 17 to highlight their dissatisfaction with government immigration policies.

The anti-immigrant policies of this government have become intolerable. The difficulties faced by International students are not isolated but are part of a wider agenda to keep away migrants and pander to the far-right.  Here's what you can do to help make the day a success:

Students across the country have had enough and are going to take part in a one-day national day of walk-out on November 17 to highlight their dissatisfaction and anger with such policies.

This action is not only to stand in solidarity with international students, currently being mistreated in the UK, but aims to tackle the anti-immigration sentiment which is growing in Britain and has manifested itself in the government's response to the refugee crisis.

UK has to play its part in supporting and welcoming a much higher number of refugees. This, alongside recent proposed policies which will see all migrants, including international students, having a much tougher time in the UK are the main reasons students have decided to take action and show unprecedented solidarity with migrants.

Join us on November 17 and spread the word.
