Chants of “No cuts, no fees, no corporate universities” rang out loudly from hundreds of university students in Melbourne's CBD on August 24. They came from RMIT, Swinburne, Monash, Melbourne University, Deakin University and other tertiary institutions. The protest was part of a national day of action organised by the National Union of Students against the Coalition government's cut to subsidies for undergraduate places, by 20%, as well as its plans to deregulate fees for particular courses.
