About 50,000 people, mostly students, protested today in the United Kingdom against tuition increases imposed by the Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition currently in power. It seems like they had quite a rowdy time too. Here are some highlights from The Guardian‘s liveblog coverage:
Fires burning, eggs thrown, windows smashed, activists with scarves across their faces barricaded into a marble-clad lobby after exchanging punches with police, all to chants of “Tory Scum”. Feels like the 1980s here at Millbank Towers.
