Support Teachers!

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.                                                                                                                                                                          =

Students have shown the way

Students have shown the way;with waves of protests over £9,000 tuition fees, 80% university teaching budget cuts and the scrapping of EMA (Education Maintenance Allowance), disadvantaging those from poorer backgrounds in post 16 education. In November 50,000 marched in London and nationally 130,000 school, college and university students took part in protests and occupations and tens of thousands more protested as parliament voted on fees. Rednock school students demonstrated and Stroud students occupied MP Neil Carmichael’s offices twice in a week.
