Youth Fight for Jobs and Education fortnight of action 13-27 October

Join the hot autumn of protest!

We're in for the fight of our lives. Fee hikes, EMA scrapped, youth services cut to the bone, housing benefit cut and attacks on our democratic rights.

This is the record so far of the Con-Dem coalition. And if the Tories aren't stopped they'll take anything we have left over.

That's why we are getting organised and fighting back. Youth Fight for Jobs and Education is kicking off the hot autumn with a fortnight of protest.

We want to use the protests to build momentum for the TUC demo on 20 October and to build support for the demand for a 24-hour general strike.

This autumn we are saying we won't be a lost generation, we are fighting their system and demanding a future!

Northern Ireland

Over 300 young people and trade unionists took part in the March for a Future called by Youth Fight for Jobs & Education Northern Ireland.

Neil Moore, secretary of the campaign, said: "The march was a powerful statement that young people and workers can and will unite across the sectarian divide to fight in their common interests.

"We got a fantastic response on either side of the peaceline. Youth Fight for Jobs will be building on this success by launching a campaign against the Assembly's plans to cut EMA for school and college students.

"Students here have already beaten the politicians on this issue and they can do it again." The organisers extend their thanks to all who took part in and supported the march, in particular Unite the Union, NIPSA, PCS and INTO photo Youth Fight for Jobs Northern Ireland
