John Leggot Protest


Below is a short report of the Student Protest at John Leggot College Scunthorpe.
Thank you to Martin Copson for submitting the report.

Over 100 sixth form students at John Leggot College walked out of lectures in protest at the Coalition government's decision to treble tuition fees and scrap EMA. Despite the freezing weather the students were in a defiant mood and it was really inspiring to see them making a stand. A smaller group marched into the town centre and distributed leaflets stating their cause. The response from the public was almost entirely supportive of the their fight.


The coalition proposals really stick in the craw as the government ministers all received a free state education and now seem intent on pulling the ladder up after them. Free secondary education is vital to ensure that the potential of working class kids is not wasted as they are put off from going to university by the prospect of massive debt. The protests in Scunthorpe and around the country put paid to the myth that young people are apathetic and unpolitical and should give us hope that the ConDems can be defeated, and that we can build a better world.
Scunthorpe Coalition of Resistance members were on the protest supporting the students' fight and some good contacts were made, which can only strengthen the movement.
