Oh my word, is this going to be an armed demonstration? Things are getting really serious.
Its also backed by the UCUActually there wasn't one for the last 3 years of my 4 year uni course, which I started in 2003. The NUS was run by either Labour Students then or Broad left. Labour Students only wanted to offer token opposition to fees increases for obvious reasons, and Broad left seemed intent on cuting back on union democracy to plug a funding shortfall created by Labour Students bizarrely. This is the first big national student demo properly backed by NUS since that demo in 2003 if my memory serves me correctly.
