Students and workers march for college funding

Over 1,000 teachers, lecturers and college students marched through central London on Wednesday 17 October to demand the end to Tory cuts and austerity in education.

Organised by the University and College Union (UCU) and Unison, people mobilised from around the country to march and to lobby MPs in parliament to demand the end of the harsh funding squeeze which has gripped FE colleges for years.
