Teachers from every village, town and city travelled to London on Saturday 20th October, to support the TUC ‘A Future that works’ demonstration.
Teachers came from the primary, secondary and sixth form sector joining school and college students and retired colleagues. Together they made the case against cuts to education and for a halt to attacks on pensions.
Pride of place went to those teachers from the North West who, despite late cancellation of transport arrangements, made their way to London.
The lively NUT bloc marched from the Embankment to Hyde Park where General Secretary Christine Blower spoke to a 100,000 strong audience.
