March against school funding cuts

Westminster, London. Sun 16 Jul 2017



 Parents and children gathered in EMbankment Gardens

 and some climbed on one of the trees

 

 Some came with banners with the name of their school  

 

 Placards called for fair funding for schools

 There were teachers with NUT flags

 and a lot of Fair Funding balloons

 Hackney NUT banner

 NUT General Secretary Kevin Courtney holds one end of the banner 'Invest in our Future'

 And the march begins

 Most people had come with children

 

 

 

 People shouted as they passed Downing St

 

 

 

 It was a short march to Parliament Square for a rally and a picnic

 

 

 Dawn Butler, Labour MP for Brent and Shadow Minister for Diverse Communities

 

 
     
 Teachers, parents and others spoke at the rally and children signed a giant letter to Education Minister Justine Greening

 'Choose Funding'
