Calling all students!

Next month, on Saturday 23rd October, I will be addressing the Progressive Students Conference in London.

It promises to be a really interesting event and provides an important opportunity to discuss the key issues facing young people today. Issues like youth unemployment which is approaching one million, soaring student debt, and savage cuts to vital public services which threaten to blight the futures of an entire generation.

The conference will also examine international issues, including challenging the growing racist tide sweeping Europe, opposing imperialism in the Middle East, supporting the inspiring social progress in Latin America, tackling climate change, and much more.  

I join very good company indeed. Ken Livingstone, Diane Abbott MP and the Deputy Leader of the Green Party Adrian Ramsay are amongst the impressive line up of speakers.

I would urge you all to support this excellent initiative. Check out www.progressivestudents.co.uk for further details of the speakers, sessions and how to register.
