March to Parliament Square
Called by London Region UCU.
National participation encouraged (book transport now).

Education is under a massive attack. Tuition fees for university have gone through the roof and colleges are in frantic competition with each other to recruit students. Now the employers want to wreck the pensions of Higher Education staff, who have voted 88% for strike action across the country with record turnouts.

Similarly, staff in FE colleges across London and beyond have voted to take strike action following a disappointing pay offer of 1% from the employer representative, the Association of Colleges, in September.

Our latest march follows our brilliant demonstration in the February snow where over five thousand people marched. This joint FE/HE demonstration is scheduled during university pension strikes and before the next round of college strikes. For the first time in history, staff in 64 UK universities will have struck for a more than a week.

We encourage delegations and support from outside London and from across the student and trade union movement.

Speakers to be announced.
At our last London demonstration speakers included Sally Hunt UCU General Secretary, John McDonnell MP, Angela Rayner MP, Gordon Marsden MP, Shakira Martin NUS President, Kevin Courtney NEU General Secretary and many striking workers from across the union.
