With just 10 days to go until the Trade Union Congress demonstration on October 20th, we now have freely available publicity for the student and education bloc, which will meet at the University of London Union on Malet Street at 11am.
The University of London Union, supported by all of its constituent unions and the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts, has called a special education feeder march for the TUC October 20th demonstration. As hundreds of thousands march for our future – against poverty, unemployment and privatisation – students will be there in droves.
The education bloc will assemble at 11am outside the ULU building on Malet Street and form a feeder march to join the main demonstration.
ULU Vice President Daniel Cooper said: “The government’s austerity agenda affects all of us. The attacks on education form part of the wider assault on public services. Many students now work part-time or are destined for a precarious job market. On October 20th we will be marching together with the organised labour movement to send a message of defiance and opposition to the Coalition.”
Naomi Bain from Birkbeck Unison said: “I am really pleased that students are supporting this march, just as education workers will support the student march in November. We have been planning together and supporting one another’s struggles and will continue to do so.”
