Event: Action for ESOL’s Day of Action

The Action for ESOL campaign is calling for a national day of action against the cuts to the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) provision. During the same week as the budget and the TUC demonstration,  ESOL teachers, students and supporters will organise in their local areas to show support for ESOL.  Actions can be large, such as a demonstration outside your workplace, or small such as having leaflets with ESOL info on them. The most important thing is to do something and let everyone in your community, college or workplace know. Let us know through the comments, or you can follow Action for ESOL on twitter (@actionforesol) or on Facebook.

Ideas of Action:

-a demonstration in the local neighbourhood/outside your college or workplace

-public meetings, in or outside college premises (if your college is not friendly to this, try local community groups & centres)



-symbolic actions such as: students taping their mouths in protest and holding hands round the college building (thanks to students at Greenwich Community College for this one)

-an ESOL themed picnican ESOL teach-in/lesson in a public place

-community language awareness and skill-sharing talks and workshops

-banner making and poster making for 26th
