Equity supports student demo

1 October 2012

NUS demoLiam Burns, national president of the National Union of Students, has written to Equity to ask for the union’s support for its national demonstration on 21 November.

The demo will include a march through central London and the latest details can be found on the dedicated campaign website.

Assistant General Secretary Martin Brown said:

“Our members are proud to support the NUS day of action on 21 November, including Equity’s 5,000 student members training in the UK’s universities, colleges and performing arts schools. With the rise in tuition fees, funding cuts to arts and humanities subjects and the lack of fairly paid opportunities for young people starting out, we risk losing a whole generation of talent and face the prospect of limiting access to careers in media, entertainment and the arts”
