Students in Dublin have been protesting in the thousands over the past week about massive cuts to education. This video highlights a frightening level of police brutality, but illustrates also the strong feelings of anger and disgust that they are feeling – that they are being attacked and not the bankers and millionaires who caused the financial crisis.
As we see student protests in the UK over the next week, momentum will build and build against student fees and Osbourne’s axe. The potential is there to successfully tackle the government’s plans, but either way, we have to make our voices heard.
The coalition of resistance, started by Tony Benn earlier this year, is at the forefront of the fight. Hopefully the movement will spread to Cornwall soon.
