About 120 students and staff members turned out in force yesterday (Saturday 3 May) for a demo against cuts at City College Brighton and Hove.

They were protesting at plans to cut up to 50 jobs and close courses to plug a hole in the college’s budget.

The demonstration took place at 2pm in the Pelham Tower car park off Trafalgar Street in the North Laine.

Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Brighton Pavilion Purna Sen was among those to address the crowd.

    Management are using the funding cuts as an excuse to cut teaching hours for students, cut support for the most vulnerable students and cut viable courses all to pay for a new building that does not meet student needs.
