Subject: BS: Students march against tuition fees UK
From: Arthur_itus

It's today and as many as 20,000 people from across the country will be there.

Here is a link to the BBC article. Makes very interesting reading and if they follow through on some of their suggestions, then Lib Dems could be in a whole lot of bother.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-11719929

I thought this part of the article was pretty interesting.

Student targets

"There is nothing fair or progressive about tripling the cost of a degree and axing college grants that are often the difference between students being able to study or not," said Ms Hunt.

Students say they will try to use the proposed "right to recall" legislation to unseat MPs who ditch their election pledge to oppose an increase in tuition fees.

NUS president
This proposal would mean that MPs guilty of "serious wrongdoing" could be forced by voters to stand down.

In particular, Mr Porter warned that student voters will target Liberal Democrat MPs who failed to keep their promise to vote against a fee increase, threatening to topple MPs with a narrow majority.

There have already been student protests against Liberal Democrat ministers Vince Cable and Chris Huhne.

An effigy of the party leader, Nick Clegg, was hanged by students staging an occupation against the fee increase at Goldsmiths, University of London.

I'm not trying to start an argument here, and I agree to a good extent with your views, so please take me at my word.

Did the 2003 London march against the Iraq war where, (depending on who you believe) over 1 million people turned up, make any difference?

None whatsoever.

Why will this be different? I'm cynical, undoubtedly. Convince me otherwise, eh?

Good luck, anyway.

One of the few benefits of a coalition government is that there are MPs with differing opinions who may be prepared not to toe the joint-party line, especially if their manifesto stated they were opposed to a particular piece of proposed legislation. Hopefully, this demonstration will show the depth of feeling about tuition fees and those MPs who were opposed to it during the election campaign may just have the bottle to stand up and be counted on this issue. Whether there will be enough to make a difference remains to be seen. Anyway, as JC said, it has to be tried.

Can I just say that I do not condone the violent tactics of a small minority. This is both unnecessary and counter-productive. This kind of behaviour discourages people from taking part in demonstrations (and I forsee quite a few in the coming months) and is also unfair to the police who are themselves angry about proposed cuts in their own budgets.

Appalling coverage by the BBC News channel - replaying over and over again the same footage, the same incidents from different angles and not a single shot of the huge demonstration and peaceful march that preceded it.

It is virtually impossible to recognise what is a repeat and what is live. It gives the impression that there is massive violence going on for hour after hour and I do not believe that is the case.

Criminals walked on the streets of London today and caused hundreds of thousands of pound worth of damage and attempted to murder policemen be throwing rocks, fire extinguishers and tables from roofs . Last month a few on this site supported public protest and actually encouraged it.

I now hope both the government and the universities carry through their plans.

You can't blame today's criminal activity on anyone other than those who organized it or took part in it. We have seen it all before and heard similar excuses about some "invisible group" that turned up at and caused the trouble.

CCTV and news media footage should identify them. I hope the police deal with them and that the government stop giving students handouts and that universities give us the cream on the cake and raise fees.

From the Guardian News Blog

6.21pm:
One of the protesters who was outside Millbank today, @mikarv, has sent me the video below which shows activists on the roof of the building which houses the Conservative campaign HQ allegedly throwing a fire extinguisher towards riot police below.

The crowd on the ground respond with by booing, before beginning to chant "Stop throwing shit."

@mikarv said he couldn't see whether it struck an officer or not, "but it fell exactly where a dense crowd of riot police were".

6.40pm:
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police Federation has said today's protests should serve as a reminder to the government to maintain police numbers.

He said officers had shown "great restraint and professionalism", but added:

"It is a reminder that the government must maintain the number of fully warranted police officers to ensure that policing these spontaneous incidents, along with their everyday duties, can be sustained in the capital," he added.

"While we understand and support the right to peaceful protest, police officers must be supported when dealing with such unprovoked violence."

6.48pm:
The Press Association are reporting that at least four protesters, all in handcuffs, have been driven away from the scene in a police van.

Rachel Williams says six more vans have been driven into the courtyard of Millbank Tower, and people are being loaded inside. No word from police on the total number of arrests yet.

Right that's it for today, thanks for reading and commenting. My colleague Jonathan Haynes will be updating the blog with any major news for the next few hours.

If you have been involved in the protests today and would like to share any photos, videos or yarns, then please contact me either on Twitter: @adamgabbatt or by email: adam.gabbatt@guardian.co.uk. I'll have a look through any footage tomorrow and hopefully include it on the website

6.59pm:
Jonathan Haynes picking up from Adam here. As protesters are released from cordons of police outside Millbank Tower, some have been speaking out. Leila Khaled, 22, a student at Essex University described the police tactics as kettling - the tactic of penning in protesters widely criticised after its use at the G20 protests in London last year.

She said: "We've been kettled in and people are getting desperate here. It's freezing and all we want is to go home.We're not here to cause any trouble."

7.06pm:
A police spokesman tonight said 32 people had been arrested for a range of offences, including criminal damage and trespass, and were now in custody. Those arrested are being taken to a police stations across central London including Westminster and Fulham.

Earlier, the London mayor, Boris Johnson, said: "I am appalled that a small minority have today shamefully abused their right to protest. This is intolerable and all those involved will be pursued and they will face the full force of the law."

The G meeting in Toronto which spawned violent actions by a small minority caused losses to merchants that are still being settled, and the vandals who were identified have had court appearances.
It is the general law-abiding citizens who suffer through having to pay the tab through increased police and insurance costs.

The fee increases seem excessive, but I don't know the situation in the UK. A well-educated citizenry is a necessity; perhaps the cuts should be applied elsewhere.

"Protesters smashed windows and WAVED ANARCHIST FLAGS from the roof of the building housing the Conservative party headquarters as the fringe of a vast rally against university funding cuts turned violent.
[...] PROTESTERS WHO BROKE OFF FROM THE MAIN ROUTE OF THE MARCH occupied the lobby of the building at 30 Millbank, in central London, where police wielding batons clashed with a crowd hurling placard sticks, eggs and bottles. ACTIVISTS WHO HAD MASKED THEIR FACES WITH SCARVES traded punches with police to chants of "Tory scum". The exchanges were recorded by broadcasters' helicopter-mounted cameras and protesters' mobile phones." (Guardian)

So a group of anarchists and not students (concealed faces, waving anarchist flags, breaking off together from the route) quite evidently had this violence preplanned.
The question is how in future genuine protesters can identify such small groups and prevent them from hijacking otherwise peaceful demonstrations?

I'd far rather peace than violence Arthur, but I know that people are starting to 'explode' inside with all this bloody mess we're in..and with the so-called 'solutions', so it hardly surprises me...and quite frankly I can completely understand where they're coming from..

I also know that it's very, very easy for 'others' to whip up a situation, and has been proven recently in Canada, it's not *always* the bad guys who are doing the whipping up.

But as you can see from the video I posted above, sometimes peaceful folks sit down...er...peacefully, and they get charged at by horses and policemen.

We are not living in 'normal' times, and sadly, I believe this is going to start happening a great deal...

When police try to control and arrest vandals in a mob, it is inevitable that some 'innocents' get caught up. The police will use whatever weapons are at their disposal- as they should. The protests at gatherings of world leaders should be put down; they serve no purpose except to add to local government costs.

Whether they are Marxists, unemployed crusties, members of the WI, students, members of the animal liberation front, or undercover police, is neither here nor there. They were there as anarchists, and not as students. The march was about student fees not anarchy. I'm not against anarchy per se in fact I'm broadly in favour of anarcho-communism myself, though I tend to think people looking for a bundle will wave whatever flag suits their purpose.

The point to this is that when democratic (oh, or do I mean bureaucratic, with marker pens that cannot bite for five years and will even then be whitewashed by the press zombies of the industrial-military complex?) means to reply to oppression are muzzled then eventually the worms will turn. Read Marx.

Agent Provocateurs, CS...If you want to put a bad taste into the mouths of folks taking part, or watching, sometimes, you sprinkle a few around. I'm not saying that's what's going on...because at present nobody knows the exact situation.

I remember when we went on the Poll Tax March in Plymouth, 20 years or more ago, there was a group who were doing their damndest to stir up a very peaceful march. The police were..er...a little more trustworthy back then, although I'm sure some of them still are.....and they did a good job of keeping them right away from everyone else...The march passed off very peacefully.

People are very angry. The British are finally starting to Grumble...
You can push us SO far and then, WHOOSH! we go a little bananas. My ex-husband was made redundant yesterday. 'Rok' a huge building firm down here in the South West went to the wall, thousands of jobs in jeopardy, although there maybe a new buyer...People are at their wits end...and all the while they know how the grossly rich are getting even richer and more gross.

NO student should have to pay £9000 a year for University fees, it's just wrong! God, THREE years of that means they leave already with debts of TWENTY SEVEN THOUSAND POUNDS! How can that be right???? NO young person should start their life with those kind of debts! HOW will they ever get their lives back? How will they ever afford anything in life, house, family etc...
