Student protest, Cheltenham, Dec 8th

Students at the University of Gloucestershire and Gloucestershire College are planning a Cheltenham protest against education reforms on December 8th. The following information has been copied from http://savemydegree.co.uk
The protest will start from the service yard at Pittville Campus. We will meet at 11:30AM on Wednesday 8th December. We will then move on to the main road and past UCAS and the park and ride. Once we get to the roundabout we will turn left, and follow Evesham Road in to the town center, passing Boots and on towards the Promenade. We will go past the queens hotel and gardens at the town hall. We will finish the march at Montpelier Gardens.
The theme is red for this march. Feel free to be creative. Common sense is best used here.
We will be starting from the service yard at Pittville Campus. For those driving the park and ride is only 5 minutes away. To get there by bus get the “D” service to the Park and Ride or 94U to Pittville Campus. When you arrive at Pittville Campus, look for signs to the Students’ Union, and just past the Students’ Union building we shall be meeting there. Its a square surrounded with Halls of Residence.
We will be finishing at Montpelier gardens. Once we reach here, we will have a number of the press available and our own Filmer’s, so feel free to give them an interview and get yourself on our videos. Feel free to have a rest for a while here.
