Students and workers march on Tory HQ

Today’s NUS/UCU demonstration was the biggest education protest in a generation, with most sources estimating at least 50,000 demonstrators. The mood was lively and defiant with students chanting “Tories out!” and occupying the road in front of parliament.

A large group of several thousand students marched off to occupy the lobby and courtyard of the Millbank Tower where the Tory Party has its HQ for several hours. With scenes reminiscent of the 1960s and 70s, the spirit of resistance in France and Greece has now come to Britain.

This will have sent shivers down the spines of the Tories and Liberals, and could kickstart a wave of students

The media has tried to characterise this as “violence” and “anarchy”. We think it is better to celebrate the fact that so many students are prepared to confront the government head on. Education Activist Network supporters are invited to sign the statement in defence of the protestors:

Many students on their coaches back from the demonstration are now organising meetings to plan for occupations, walkouts and other actions.

Coordinating meeting: Where next after the national demonstration?
6pm Monday 15th November, King’s College London

    You silly twats, we have turned the public against us as what happened today will not help our cause at all. You have done more damage to our cause with your fucking silly antics. Dumb, dumb, fucking dumb. Nothing will change so fuck you all! lol

    • Learn to think says:

      Yeah, its like with the Poll Tax, there was a big demo that turned violent, and then as a consequence of the violence all support for the anti-Poll Tax movement melted away. That’s why today we are stuck with the Poll Tax, which definitely still exists, and why Thatcher is still in power…

      Wait a second!
