@Toy_Tory very true, we've settled on #26march from the official twitter account though I personally think #march26 makes more sense, ah well :)
Right, I'm off to catch a tube but keep your tweets coming in and we'll start from the ground in London at 9am :)
Headed for 61 cruzon street, which has been occupied as a centre for #march26. Squatters not affiliated with any group says press release.
At Queen Mary Students' Union in Mile End officials are making placards in preparation for students arriving. They are hoping to at least match the 200+ strong contingent that they led to the NUS march back in November.
Editors from across the University of London's student newspapers are contributing today to the LSJSN, tweeted below: we'll be aggregating their content here also. The ULU march sets off from Russell Square are 11am with the union serving a 'big-breakfast' before hand.
Ozzy from QMSU Stop the Cuts just gave a pep talk for today's march #26March
Lots of support from East London drivers. Honking horns as QMSU head to Mile End tube
Setting off for ULU. Covering the protest till 2 then going to see what people at the boat race think. Not sure it will be supportive...
About 20 policemen near green park. One with red id tag. At least 6 cars. Outside the intercontinental. #sukey
Might have an interview with a big personality later. Stay tuned.
2 additional cars with that looked to be 12 police just drove past. Three motorcycles also spotted. Make that 3 cars. #sukey
QMSU have reached Tottenham Court Road and are marching to ULU
At mile end tube station, students on their way to protest are stopped to be photographed by a qmul professor who said he's proud.
Queen Mary students file towards ULU. The mood is lively with debates over the value of different left-wing theorists dominating the crowd.
Two armed police in curzon st. Handguns and strange SMG sized weapons. Looked to have canisters attached. #sukey
