Something you think should be included? Email us and let us know!

10/11/10 Student Protest:
Well this is obviously the big one this week – 50,000 students, lecturers and supporters took to the streets of london. Double the number of people the organisers were expeting, and certainly far above the number the 250 met police were expecting to deal with. Then of course the march became an occupation of tory party HQ and the windows came smasing down.

Students in Manchester occupied their uni’s finance dept in protest at the rise in fees.

11/10/11 Student Protest : The aftermath
As could be expected the right wing press went nuts about this one. After years of refering to anarchists as “middle class students”, they decided we were all “violent yobs, who infiltrated a march of middle class students”. Well they really can’t have it both ways can they? Maybe they should realise that ‘anarchist’ does not exclude being a student, worker, parent, or many other things, and that not being an anarchist doesn’t mean you can’t get angry and smash up tory party HQ!
Many papers are calling on people to snitch on those involved, and some people are currently clogging up their inboxes. Why not send your own  ‘useful pointers’ to studentriots@telegraph.co.uk or exclusive@the-sun.co.uk.

If you were involved and are worried about arrest check outthis advice.

A slightly less expected piece of reporting is paul o gradys brilliant speech of support. After his previous attack on the condem coalition his show seems to be fast becoming the most radical on TV!
