The national campaign against fees and cuts is organising convergence (and crash) space for anti-Lib Dem conference action which has already been reclaimed. The Birmingham Social Centre is ready to be a base for the start of another autumn of anti-austerity direct action by students and workers.

The Lib Dems betrayed a entire generation don't let them get away with it take direct action at the Lib Dem conference.

Between the 15th -21st of September the social centre will be open providing.

A base for affinity group action, if you want to come and take action at
the liberal democrat conference around the TUC organised national demo on the 18th. Come down to the occupied convergence space on the 16th of September, where you can meet likeminded activists and get direct
action training and legal support from NCAFC activists.
