International Students' Campaign Day of Solidarity

The anti-immigrant policies of this government have become intolerable. The difficulties faced by International students are not isolated but are part of a wider agenda to keep away migrants and pander to the far-right.

That's why students across the country took part in a one-day national walk-out in November 2015, to highlight their dissatisfaction and anger with such policies.

This action was not only to stand in solidarity with international students, currently being mistreated in the UK, but aimed to tackle the anti-immigration sentiment which is growing in Britain and has manifested itself in the government's response to the refugee crisis.

UK has to play its part in supporting and welcoming a much higher number of refugees. This, alongside recent proposed policies which will see all migrants, including international students, having a much tougher time in the UK are the main reasons students have decided to take action and show unprecedented solidarity with migrants.

You can see a selection of photos from the day here and can see coverage of the day from the Guardian and the Independent.
