On Tuesday 27th of September Edd Bauer was suspended as the vice president of education “indefinitely”. Stop Fees and Cuts Birmingham are calling for Edd’s reinstatement to his position with immediate effect and are calling for national mobilisation.

Join the demonstration at the University of Birmingham Guild of Students from 1pm on Wednesday 12th October.
