March on Parliament – Protest to save EMA, 19th January
On Wednesday 19th January, MPs will debate and vote on the abolition of EMA.
WEDNESDAY 19th JANUARY
We must protest in our thousands against the government’s plans to abolish EMA – vital support for young people and often the difference between gaining a college education and not.
Assemble 4pm at PICCADILLY CIRCUS to March on Parliament from 5pm
Supported by the London Student Assembly, National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts, Education Activist Network and Free Education Campaign
Please spread the word by inviting everyone to the facebook event here.
The NUS have called a lobby of MPs – to put pressure on MPs ahead of the vote.
You need to arrange a meeting with your MP before you travel to London. Once you have arranged a meeting fill this form (http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/emalobby) to let NUS know which MPs are being lobbied.
Visit the NUS website for more info.
