    We will not accept 80% cuts on university funding whilst other departments have much smaller cuts. We will not accept a tripling of university fees, no matter how fair the repayment system is. We will not accept such extortionate fees whilst students in Wales, Scotland and mainland Europe will have much cheaper fees. The government has the funds to keep fees as it is, as much as Cameron denies it.

    The official university thinktank Million+ believes that these changes to the fee system will even damage the economy moreso.

    9th December has been announced as the day the parliamentary vote on fees will occur. It has been dubbed as X-Day and will be a large peaceful protest in Parliament Square. Please come.

    Trust me, I'm aware. :wink2:

    Problem is, a lot of the people who resisted kettling- the ones who were running got arrested. (50ish people I believe).

    Apparently 146 people got arrested just in Trafalgar Sq. simply because they refused to leave :eek:

    Frickin' ridiculous how over excited the police get when one person lights a flare.

    There were GSCE students there who weren't allowed to leave till 8:30. :facepalm2:

    I also hate the way the media keep say '30 police officers went to hospital' when they go in for things as minor as a broken finger- which was mostly caused when they tripped after rugby tackling a student.

    I am amazed at people's attitudes that we should never protest and just sit back and accept whatever happens.

    Even if you disagree with the protests, surely you see that it is a good thing people are DOING something, not just sitting and whining. If nobody ever spoke up against anything then whoever holds power will just walk all over you.

    I find it bizarre when you get some people who disagree with the cuts and yet can't be bothered to do anything other than moan about how unfair it is. To the argument that it is wrong to skip studies to protest against these things. A few hours out of your studies to speak out against something which will have repercussions for years to come seems a very reasonible use of time. Not to mention the fact that people probably waste a few hours over the course of a week doing unimportant things.
