Stop the Fees Rise – protest at London Lib Dem Conference – 4th December

As the campaign to defeat higher fees reaches its final stages now is the time to really turn the pressure on MPs.

Lib Dems in particular need to feel the pressure – especially given their plans to break their pre-election promise to vote against any fee hike.

Protest outside London Lib Dem Conference – Saturday 4th December
Assemble 12noon

Haverstock School, Haverstock Hill, London NW3 2BQ
Nearest tube Chalk Farm

We are calling this peaceful protest outside the Lib Dem London Conference to demand that all London Lib Dem MPs vote against higher fees.

The London Lib Dem MPs are:
• Vince Cable
• Simon Hughes
• Sarah Teather
• Paul Burstow
• Tom Brake
• Edward Davey
• Lynne Featherstone

We hope this protest will encourage the MPs listed above to honour the pledge they made to students in May.

The rebellion within the Lib Dems has already begun with more than 100 of the Party’s parliamentary candidates petitioning Nick Clegg to oppose government plans to raise tuition fees in England to avoid pushing the party “back in the political wilderness.”

The vote on fees will be taking place within the next three weeks – this is a key opportunity to put pressure on the Lib Dems – please invite all your friends to the facebook event: http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/event.php?eid=148974651817209
