I'm amazed that kids in Britain were protesting tuitions of $10,000... These kids are angered that a college would ask for a kid to go $120,000+ in debt for a BA in liberal arts.

More context: There was a big rally that started earlier in the day with undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty. In anticipation of this rally the Chancellor apparently sent out a letter saying no tents or sleeping bags allowed--24 hour protesting could be held otherwise. The students attempted to erect a few tents and when the police moved in to take them down the students locked arms. The video is the result of that.

This confrontation continued into early morning hours. There are pictures and a few videos at the San Francisco Chronicle web site: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2011/11/09/BA861L SR8G.DTL

Re: Kids in Britain.

As far as I am aware, school was so cheap that families didn't have to spend the $100,000 for school. It was a recent thing to hike up the prices; not a lot of families can afford it now.

Finally a protest with a clear message that actually accomplished something. "STOP BEATING STUDENTS!" And it actually worked.

That one cop, the one who started it, only targeted the women.

Where's Charlie Bronson when you need him, the Tom Hardy one that is, to grease up his ass with crisco, jump into the pack of those pigs and send em flying?

Five stars for the the guy with the backpack shield in the front.

Pretty cool alternative history right there, with the Ordnungspolizei and Schutzstaffel-looking uniforms. I bet Roland Freisler shows up in the next episode.

Notice the lack of the United States Constitution swooping down and saving them. While it lives a carefree life as a non-living document, this happened. That same document will also fail at saving the police.

When I was in college (where I got a full scholarship), my department chair gave us a speech about how American youth had become complacent since the 70s, and if we knew what was what, we'd be protesting too. This was around 2002 or 3.

Everyone involved in this needs to be fired.

Or expelled. You can't really fire students.

Evil. Fuck this country.

It's as if the East Bay has a gang of roaming uniformed men looking for rallies so they have an excuse to beat and shoot civilians.
