As some of you may or may not care; in Britain we have been protesting because the current government in power are cutting our education benefits.

We have nationwide protests when this happens, it's not just a London thing (I for one, am from Bristol).

Day 1; there was people storming the Tory HQ & someone threw a fire extinguisher off of the roof. There was a large amount of students locked down in an area for 4 hours, so they started stripping down a Police van, got inside it & started stealing stuff while wrecking it.

Day 2; I've just come back from the Bristol protests, we were charging at the Police, pushing Policemen over when we were contained & playing loud dubstep & Rage Against the machine. We were even pushing Police horses away from us & grabbing students free from Police arrest.

I have seen on the news that some students in a city managed to storm into the council building & raided the conference hall. I was on the news, I'm going to put that on YouTube. Here's some videos & pictures I've just taken:

I would joining you in the protest if I was not drowning in coursework. How the hell can I afford £9000. It's just insane, I think I would struggle paying the £3000 let along £9000.
To make things worse is that I'm in college now living of EMA, Uni just feel like impossible dream for someone like me. :(
They're cutting EMA next year. The fucking scum sucking goverment.

It costs 15,000+ euro to go to university in Australia. As much as I understand the fact you guys really cannot afford and hate the new raises on university costs, I can't help but not care since we have it two or tree times worse here and we've learnt to live with it.

Protest on, I guess.
But imagine your government tripling the price of anything after they promised before they got into power that they wouldn't#w{x(}
I saw a news report on Good Morning Today on NBC... about the situation you've been having in the UK. I heard that there have been some killings and brutality from both sides over these stand-offs and shit...

And also, Prince Charles and the girl of his life were caught on a mob, attacked, but thankfully escaped with little injuries. Now, I understand how you guys feel about the whole thing, but attacking the Royal Family seems a bit TOO extreme.

--------------------

Why the hell did the protesters attack the Royal Family? It's the bastards in the government that have caused this mess. They just don't give a shit what we think. At £9,000 a year, I'm not going to University. Fuck tuition fees. I thought £3,000 was expensive enough. Any studying I do is with Open University.
This raise is bullshit!
Nic Clegg went back on his words, because before the election he stated that he would not support raising tuition fees.

This is just insane, I say Go On Protesters!

Can't you vote him out? Since we're under the Queen here in Australia I assume you guys have the "power of the people" and can easily kick the guy out of government.
Guys! I went to the protest yesterday in London. Check out these videos & pictures I took!

Dude, I need to ask you: were you part of the mob that attacked Prince Charles and his wife? Because from a news report I read, Metro Police were seconds from drawing live ammo-armed guns at the mob that attacked him and his wife.

Hope you weren't stupid enough to be part of that group that attacked the royal couple and threatening to "off their heads!".

The royal couple is just a useless puppet for the parliament anyways; all they do is tourist attraction and generally legacy cruft filler.

Second, the Queen at the moment only has the power to agree with stuff.
Here's my full collection of pictures & videos; put together in chronological order.

Yes & no. I was being kettled & being involved with the documenting of kettled police vs anarchist thugs. Further up the road, people managed to escape. As they continued they broke shop windows, burned the Norway Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square & attacked the royal car.

They came from the same place, but I wasn't there when the car was attacked. I was on the other side of the police wall where the kettle was.

Of course not, I'm a peaceful protester. Furthermore, some of the things that these anarchists did with the other protesters was frankly disgusting.

Burning the public Christmas tree we get every year from Norway to thank us for the World War. David Gilmore (Pink Floyd's guitarist)'s son swinging on the flags of a war memorial, pissing on Churchill's statue; but actually attacking the monarchy is the biggest dent to our reputation yet.

But for me personally, burning the Christmas tree was like burning my Qur'an.

Just look at this.
I find this really annoying. I do not want to pay 27,000£ to go to university.
