After heading down to your local picket line with tea and cake to support the public sector workers on November 30th, come and march in London with fellow students.

OU Activists will be joining the education feeder march at ULU at 12:30.  This will be a visible bloc for students and education workers on the main march.

We will be meeting outside Waterstones, on the Malet Street side, facing the University of London Union:
