The Save ESOL Campaign comprising, over 50 organisations, marches on 28 April against the recent cuts to English classes for immigrants and asylum seekers.
The march is to highlight the fact that many migrant workers and refugees need these English classes in order to play a full part in society. The campaigners want the ESOL classes to stay free, which will allow a larger percentage of the migrant population to access English learning. They are also fighting for the right for asylum seekers to immediately have access to English classes rather than the six-month waiting time.
A march will take place in London on Saturday 28 April 2007, see link for further details.
