They say,

“We have one chance to stop these cuts and we need as many of you to be involved as possible! We can do this, but only if we have the numbers behind us.

“This campaign is not about Party Politics or Party affiliations, it about our children having the best possible education that we can give them. Our children are our future doctors, nurses, teachers, engineers- the people that will shape our country’s future.

“Make some noise for our children!”
