For Immediate Release
Friday 3rd December
Students, parents and public sector workers will demonstrate outside the hastily rearranged London Liberal Dem Conference tomorrow, Saturday 4th December 2010. The Liberal Democrats have been forced into rearranging their high profile London conference as a direct result of planned protests at the original venue that forced the venue to cancel the conference booking because it did not want to be associated with the Liberal Democrats Conference at this time.
Fiona Edwards, spokesperson for the Free Education Campaign, which was organising the protest said:
“No matter where the Liberal Democrats hold there meetings, conference and surgeries, they will face the anger and resentment of a generation who they have lied to.
The message we have for the Lib Dem MPs is that it is not too late to keep your promise.
A free market in fees is a Tory policy cooked up by the heirs of Thatcher and the Lib Dems should not go along with it.”
