As a group we have agreed to support the strike action by teachers tomorrow 17th October. Several members have given flyers to parents, pupils and staff explaining the reasons for the strike and for our support of it at:
Severn View, Callowell and Stroud Valley primary schools
Stroud High, Marling and Archway secondary schools
Our friends in Cheltenham and Gloucester Against Cuts have been flyering in their patches too.
We would welcome help visiting pickets to communicate support from SATC tomorrow, and help distributing leaflets. Please see the attached leaflet (or pass on to friends, family, neighbours and colleagues). You might also like to share this film and, if you can, this tweet.
If you are a parent, please consider visiting pickets and passing on our leaflet to other parents. =
There is a rally in Bristol from 10am.
