When? 1pm on Friday the 14th September.
Where? Where you are right now! There's plenty of ways to get involved.
Called by: London Met UCU and London Met UNISON.
On Friday, the London Met UCU and UNISON are asking everyone to do something locally. This could be something really small like signing a petition or big like attending a small protest.
This could be:
1) Signing the official NUS Petition. Find it here and get your students' union, clubs, societies, lecturers, officers, friends and family to add their name too:
2) Sending a letter to your MP too here - it only takes 1-2 minutes! http://www.nus.org.uk/en/
And ask them to sign EDM 437:
3) Attending your MP surgery and meeting with your MP to raise concerns.
4) Organising an open meeting/forum to discuss international student issues.
5) Attending any local gatherings/protests.
6) Come to our rally / open discussion the night before at London Met:
