    ******************************** ******************************** *

    Monday 20 December, 2010.
    12:00 Piccadilly Circus, London

    March of Resistance to Education Cuts.

    The MPs have broken their pledges!

    They thought they won. Let's prove them wrong!

    This is a national march in Central London.

    This time we shall make a difference!

    Invite everyone!

    LOOK WHAT YOU'VE DONE TO OUR EDUCATION!
    THIS IS POOR STUDENTS DISCRIMINATION!

    The date is fixed on the 20th of December, so everyone come down to London. We meet at Piccadilly Circus at 12:00 and then we are going through the central London streets, where the police will find it difficult to kettle us.

    ******************************** ************
    This event is organised with help of The National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts, The National Union of Students, London University Student Union, RMT and multiple national unions and organisations.

    Boring. Police have confirmed that next protest they will use a "intrusive and robust approach"

    So close to Christmas? Why not make it for the new year. Students who live outside London can't afford travel costs.

    What utter *******s.

    If the measures discriminate against anyone , it is the children of middle-income families, not poor enough to get one or more years of their fees paid for, but not rich enough to have any parental help in paying them off. This actually comprises the vast majority of the student popultation (including myself).

    Why should coming from a low-income background effect your employment after graduation? It won't, and hence I don't see how giving away free years of tuition to those from low income families makes sense.


    That said, so few of the people who attend these glorified street fights seem to know the details of what they're protesting against, I doubt any of your fellow rioters would be able to point that out. They'll be too busy vandalising public buildings and shouting "**** tories" a lot.

    Evening good sir, I believe you dropped something on your way to making this thread:
    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1488014

    Don't you recognise it? It's your original thread, about the exact same thing.

    Abandoned it because you couldn't take a bit of argument? Hilarious.

    This probably set out with good intentions, but its obvious that a few bad eggs will ruin the whole event and get all the attention. I will still go anyway, hopefully there will be more peaceful people.

    Erm aren't you forgetting that the Poll Tax just re-emerged a couple years down the line with the Council Tax, which is essentially the Poll Tax just in a cuddlier form.

    Give it up, you've lost. The last thing students need is another random assortment of anarchists and middle class tossers rampaging through Central London, scaring our royal horse, desecreating the statue of Winston and the Cenotaph and generally giving students a bad name.

    I think student 'protesters' lost any hope of public sympathy when they started to desecrate the Cenotaph.

    You mean the protests that lead to the government becoming more hard-line and passing the pension law anyway?

    Maybe our police should be more like the French and just tear gas the *******s. SHow them a taste of real police brutality.

    Our police our a soft touch. Plenty of other countries would have used a mix of tear gas rubber bullets and water cannon

    Use national express coaches. You can get tickets in advance (funfares) a lot cheaper
