Saturday 7th June

NOAM (1) (1)

March in solidarity with Hackney Community College – our struggle is the whole FE sector’s struggle, please come and support workers at our sister college :

Hackney College has suffered a 25% budget cut in the last 4 years.  This has resulted in course closures, job cuts and has left our community with less choice, limited routes into HE and less chance of anything but minimum wage employment.
On June 7th staff, students and members of the public will be taking this to the heart of our community in a march from Hackney College to Gillet Sq in Dalston.   We are marching for fair funding for FE, for our students’ futures and against staff cuts.
March for quality education for everyone, not just the elite
Fair funding for FE
March against coalition cuts
Protest against redundancies
