Today students protest around the country against police intimidation and violence

December 11, 2013 · 1 min read

Tensions have been mounting over the last few weeks especially at the University of London where a police officer was filmed punching a student. Students had been occupying part of the university in protest against private sector funding of the university, staff pay and plans to close the student union building.

Meanwhile in Sussex five students have been battling expulsion following protests; their suspension has been lifted, but disciplinary action is still being pursued against all five.

If you’re joining the protests today then do take a moment to check legal advice from Green and Black Cross.
