Student Revolt: Voices of the Austerity Generation


Manufacturer: Pluto Press

Product Information

'Whatever happened to the student revolt? In 2010 young people across Britain took to the streets to defy a wave of government attacks on education, increasing tuition fees, and cuts to grants for college students. Months of occupations, kettling and outbreaks of violence ensued, but to what effect? Student Revolt brings to life the extraordinary events of that year and how a new generation found its voice in the power of the mass movement. Testimonies from activists, students and politicians are woven together in a narrative which captures the energy and excitement but also the deep divisions of the time.

Many of the "Millbank Generation" went on to explore different forms fo politics and continue the fight against austerity. Together they offer a poignant reminder of what we can learn from the students truggle, and what a powerful force young people can be.'

Matt Myers, with introduction by Paul Mason. Pluto Press, 2017.
