10,000 Students March in London

Students are occupying London. A crowd of up to 10,000 has stormed the U.K. capital, demonstrating against government cuts to university funding that will boost their fees. Cops have made some 20 arrests, and protesters have been seen throwing sticks and bottles at the police, who are armed with rubber bullets. Just last year, similar student protests turned violent, and the party headquarters of Prime Minister David Cameron were attacked. Some of today’s protesters hitched up with the Occupy London movement, briefly creating a tent city with about 28 tents.
