  1. Cheryl mum of 4 says:

    I’d like to add my name to this list. My eldest 2 are currently affected by the threat of losing EMA. Especially tragic to my 2nd son who is passionate about his education and wants to do a BSc in Physics in 3 years yet without EMA he may not even be able to afford his A Levels as we can’t afford the cost of subsidising the cost unless one of us gets a job. The 2 youngest kids I worry more for. Their future is being sabotaged as I’m trying to encourage them to believe their education will help their future.
    Thank you to all you wonderful students opposing the destruction of my childrens future.

  5. Jenny Wilkes says:

    I’d like to add my message of solidarity. I’m an MA student at Salford Uni, and I’m incredibly proud to be a student right now. This is the start of something big! Massive respect for everyone involved in the occupation. I’m going to swing by tomorrow and come and show my support.
