Hackney Community College protest march against cuts this Saturday
Students and staff from Hackney Community College are marching on Saturday in protest at plans to axe 55 jobs there.
The college in Falkirk Street is proposing the job losses as part of �2million of budget cuts after the government slashed further education funding.
Unions have blasted the plan for job redundancies when youth unemployment is at an all-time high.
Some courses which help long-term unemployed gain skills to find a job are among those under threat.
The college is currently consulting with trades unions and staff over the proposals.
