Students in the UK are at it again, escalating their struggle against tuition hikes. As politicians met behind closed doors to approve huge tuition hikes thousands of students and supporters converged around parliament. Police ‘kettled’ and attacked students leading to massive street battles that at one point included protesters attacking Prince Charles’ luxury car as it drove him and his wife Camilla to a theater opening. Police also indiscriminately beat many protesters almost killing 20 year old Alfie Meadows.
The tuition hikes were passed by the backstabbing politicians but students say that their fight will continue!
