Jarrow march visits district

JOBLESS marchers protesting about a lack of opportunities for young people paraded through the district last week.

The Jarrow March 2011, organised by campaign group Youth Fight For Jobs, stopped off in Bolsover, Shirebrook, Mansfield and Sutton ahead of a protest event in London on 5th November.

It marked the 75th anniversary of a similar event when 200 unemployed workers marched from Jarrow, near Newcastle, to raise awareness of mass unemployment.
