Live coverage of today's student walk-out can be found on Socialist Worker
and The Guardian
. This website
has details of all the walk-outs across the country. I am hearing that the tube is full of protesting students and pupils at the moment. Latest news says 600 students have walked out of Leeds Uni, hundreds of pupils have walked out Allerton Grange secondary school in Leeds, 1000 students have set off from ULU, 100 have walked out of Dundee University, and over 100 have left Parkside school in Cambridge... just a few examples of the actions taking place already. I'm also glad to see that LSE students are on their way down to Trafalgar Square to join the rally. In addition, students at Birmingham University have just occupied. This is going to be big.
ps: students at South Bank university are also now in occupation
