Students from our region will join an expected crowd of 10,000 in London today.
The protest is set up under the slogan Educate, Employ, Empower. It is the first national student protest to be held after the chaotic marches of November and December 2010.
As well as protesting against the rise in tuition fees and cuts to Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA), student leaders also want to highlight the bleak employment prospects facing today's young people.
