Stop the sell off

Purchase Red Pepper's latest campaign briefing: 'The student loans sell off', by Andrew McGettigan

March 24, 2014 · 2 min read

RPSL Following our recent teach-in at the House of Commons on the sale of student loans, Red Pepper and higher education expert Andrew McGettigan have produced an A4 double-sided briefing on the student loans sell off, providing much needed insight into what is actually happening and why it’s a bad policy.

The pamphlet, titled ‘The student loans sell off’, gives an overview of past, current and future student loans sales, the figures and financial engineering behind them and their consequences. The briefing is concise and accessible and can be understood by those with little knowledge of finance. In other words, it’s a great source of information and a vital campaigning resource.

We’re trying to get the briefing out to as many individuals, organisations and students’ unions as possible. If you think you’d be interested in acquiring a batch to help with your campaign we’d love to hear from you at student@redpepper.org.uk.

The pricing (including p&p) is as follows:

£10 per 100 copies

£45 for 500 copies

£90 for 1000 copies

These prices allow us to cover our costs, but if you or your institution are able to contribute a little more than the above rates we welcome the support. We also welcome donations to help fund further printing. Additionally, for those interested in larger bulk buys we can work out further price discounts. Payment can be done by cheque or online. An digital version of the leaflet will be available soon.

Help us spread the word: If you know any organisation who you think would be interested in our briefing please tell them to contact student@redpepper.org.uk.
