Join us for the print launch of Fight back!, Wednesday 6th April, 7pm at Housmans bookshop where Nina Power (Roehampton University), Aaron Peters (PhD student and co-editor, Fight back!), Anthony Barnett (founder, openDemocracy), Jonathan Moses (National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts) will discuss the issues raised by 'Fight back!' in the aftermath of the TUC demonstration against the cuts on the 26th March.

‘Fight back!’ is a gripping, 300 page reader of the blogs, articles, posts and exchanges of those involved in the student uprising. It has already received over 10,000 downloads online and plenty of enthusiastic reviews.

An unofficial politics is developing, largely hostile to the Westminster version, and Fight Back is its first manifestation.” – Andreas Wittham Smith, The Independent

“For anyone who wants to understand the anti-cuts movement, whether or not they agree with it, it is essential reading.” – Stuart White, Politics Lecturer at Oxford University. 

Entry is £3, redeemable against any purchase.

Sign the petition: save our Freedom of Information

The UK government is running a secretive unit inside Michael Gove’s Cabinet Office that’s accused of ‘blacklisting’ journalists and hiding ‘sensitive’ information from the public. Experts say they’re breaking the law – and it’s an assault on our right to know what our government is doing.

We’re not going to let it stand. We’re launching a legal battle – but we also need a huge public outcry, showing that thousands back our call for transparency. Will you add your name?

Who is bankrolling Britain's democracy? Which groups shape the stories we see in the press; which voices are silenced, and why? Sign up here to find out.
