Biggest WA student protest in years

In what was the biggest student demonstration in many years in WA, 5-600 students marched through Curtin University to protest the $2.8 billion cuts by the federal Labor government to higher education. The protest also took up the cuts already being implemented by the Curtin administration.

Left activists hold significant positions in the Guild and it is a result of a solid organising effort led by these activists that the Curtin demonstration was so much larger than previous student protests and the protests held at other WA universities on the same day.
