From Roscoe occupation:
On Thursday parliament will be voting so we plan to send as many people as possible down to London to join the protests against the cuts. Tickets are now on sale from UMSU for £10 for the first 100 man uni students and £24 after that. We are putting out a call for donations to cover the cost of sending more people down especially for college students who may be unable to afford the full. Bolton Unison have already pledged £200 for the campaign. If you or your organisation can buy some seats for college students be very useful each seat costs £24. We are also sending mini buses down the night before for people who want to meet their MP just before the vote contact the UMSU campaigns officer for more info on this.
