13 March 2013
Over 500 teachers marched from Westminster Cathedral and protested outside the Department for Education in Westminster on the wintry evening of Wednesday 13 March. The protest called by London region of the NUT, was called to say ‘Michael Gove Must Go!’.
Teachers protested to say no to pay cuts, pension attacks, the scrapping of EMA, the cancellation of the school rebuilding project and the general demoralisation that the Tory government’s assault on education has brought with it.
Civil service workers from the DfE spoke at the rally at the end of the march and brought their solidarity. PCS members at the DfE had been on strike against job cuts in the department on 7 March.
