British students continue to protest tuition hikes

Ketchup, mustard and snowballs thrown at police


British students continue to stage nationwide protests over government plans to allow tuition to rise to as much as 9,000 pounds, or $14,000. Tuition is currently capped at 3,000 pounds.  In London, “protesters pushed against lines of riot police at Trafalgar Square and some threw objects at officers, who responded with batons,” according to the Associated Press. In Bristol, students tossed ketchup and mustard at police. In Sheffield, about 200 protesters clashed with police in front of the constituency office of Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, where snowballs were reportedly thrown. The incidents were just the latest in a series of student protests against tuition hikes that began on Nov 10.
