Student Protest: Villains or Victims

Over 52.000 students and lecturers protested at Britain’s Parliament in central London. They made very clear while cutting state funding, their anger at government plans to improve tuition fees. The government maintains that the rise in fees is part of the attempt to attack the deficit. What it does in fact, it transfers the cost of higher education in the state onto students and their families.

After the results of the vote was announced, the demonstrators became really angry. They were faced by the cops who once again, used their ‘containment’ tactic, also known as kettling, within their attempt to command the specific situation. When the pupils felt suffocated by the authorities blocking them from all sides the tactic failed as usual, they reacted naturally in a violent way.

The confrontation continued for several hours and disperse to the trendy West End and Trafalgar Square from Westminster. Big Brother media and Prime Minister Cameron were foreseeable and unanimous in their condemnations of the violent actions of the demonstrators.

What exactly was all the fuss about?

First the government insists the law about raising universities tuition fees is a necessary allowance driven portion and by the recession of the authorities austerity plan. In a lame effort to produce the general public this unfair and unpopular law more palatable the government maintained the law is aimed to help poor students. This really is naturally simply window dressing, social engineering at its pathetic worst.

The voting on the law that was massively unpopular activated the biggest student demonstration in generations. The students as well as the lecturers labeled these cuts as barbaric.

The media of the institution cried ‘wolf’ regarding the degree of violence into which this demonstration escalated.

Yes, a couple benches and a Christmas tree was burned, a couple of cops were hurt in skirmishes with demonstrators while using heavy containment strategies, a few windows were broken and oh, almost forgot, Prince Charles’ limousine rear window was cracked much to his dismay (and Camilla’s surprise).
