North London saw hundreds march through its streets last Saturday in protest of a wave of planned cuts in jobs and public services in the surrounding areas. Slogans like “They say cut back! We say fight back!” and “What do we want? Jobs for all! When do we want it? Now!” echoed around Islington’s busy Holloway Road.

At the head of the demonstration were staff and students from the local London Metropolitan University, where as many as 500 jobs may be axed due to a funding crisis caused by incompetent management, made worse by the recession. Also on the march was local Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn, along with dozens of other trade unions, many of which are also fighting against cuts in their industries.
