Thousands Protest As UK Govt Debates Tuition Hike

Location: London, England
December 9, 2010

Tens of thousands of Angry student protesters marched through central London toward Parliament on Thursday December 9 2010 as lawmakers began debating a controversial plan to triple university tuition fees in Britain. Weeks of nationwide protests were reaching a crescendo, as thousands of students held demonstrations and sit-ins throughout the country. In central London, where recent protests have turned violent, demonstrators braved near-freezing temperatures to protest.
The tuition vote poses a crucial test for both the Conservative’s governing coalition with the Liberal Democrats and the government’s austerity plans to reduce Britain’s budget deficit.
