People keep asking me why I’m still in this office and what I’m doing, well im working to inform people about the affect of the governments cuts and stressing out day after day to get myself heard. I tell people that it’s because I’d rather work to try and create a decent future, rather than let the government take control of everything that is good left in this country and rip it to pieces. My future, everyones future is at stake. We work on the anti-cuts campaign because we want the people in charge to get the message that they are wrong, it’s not ok, and yes you do have to leave number ten. The direct attack on the Arts, for example has become a genuine concern, the devaluation of arts and humanities is writhe in the air with funding cuts and slanderous propaganda, even Russell group universities deeming them to be an easy option as ‘soft subjects’ and therefore of less value. This attitude is both appalling and untrue with many humanities subjects showing the same level of difficulty as science and maths based causes, which are held in such high regard by the Russell Group.
This has come after much concentration on the cutting of funding for any non-core subject. The clocks really are turning back, to a point where universities will be full of the rich and the lower classes will be taught to function as a body only to serve its country. This whole strict curb on the arts and humanities is simply an attack on individualism, something everyone in the U.K and indeed the world is entitled to. we pride ourselves on being a democracy. the country is becoming, little by little, the controlled state you see in some of the movies. With every gesture that the condems say they will put forward, they sweep under the proverbial carpet countless little freedoms and lifelines thousands depend on. They are attacking the people of this country and the people have and will start fighting back.
Solidarity and good health
