Youth Fight for Jobs and Education welcomes the decision at last weeks National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts (NCAFC) conference to
support the Jarrow march.
The Jarrow march is about fighting for a future for young people. With 1 million young people unemployed and less than half a million job
vacancies, the demand for job creation is central. But we also fight for access to a decent, free education system and played an important role in the student movement last year, alongside many students and other student anti-cuts groups such as the NCAFC.
We want the Jarrow march 2011 to bring together student activists with unemployed youth, trade union activists and anti-cuts groups to build a united fight back to the governments’ attacks. Many student groups already around the country are getting involved in the march, organising accommodation, events when we arrive in different towns and cities etc. We hope that many more will get involved in the coming months.
