The two demos, organised by Brent Fightback, a coalition of groups against the cuts, and Brent Trade Councils, a committee of local union leaders, will meet at the Clock Tower in Harlesden at 6.30pm before heading to Brent Central MP Sarah Teather’s surgery at the Methodist Church in Harlesden High Street.

A prepared statement will be handed to the children and families minister who has agreed to hear demonstrators’ concerns.
