The Hackney protest

An angry protest against the threat of job losses at Hackney Community College took place on Thursday of last week.

Thirteen lecturers and six support workers face redundancy. Courses in English for Speakers of Other Languages (Esol), IT and Access To Higher Education are among those threatened.

Members of the Unison and UCU unions, supported by students, held a march inside the college and a rally outside. They plan to continue their protests on a weekly basis.
