Students to march for foreign student rights

Thousands of foreign and local students in Australia are planning to march in Sydney next month in protest, claiming that the Australian Government fails to protect students against fraudulent Australian Immigration companies (see Rapacious agents chase international students)
and faults in the education system.

The students will march on the 2 September from the University of Sydney and will finish outside Parliament House.

The National Union of Students (NUS) says that international students have suffered attacks, have less rights in the workplace and more expensive accommodation.

The NUS are demanding that the government implement reforms to make education fair for international students.

Thanks to Embrace Australia for the heads up
