Nerd News: Students Protest Tuition Hikes in UK
Oh, my! The hotspot is London, natch. Check out reports by UK sources at the BBC News, the Guardian, and the Telegraph. The first violence has broken out, apparently, and I went to the news video feed just in time to see dozens of mounted London police gallop onto the scene. It was -- to my historian's imagination -- weirdly too-reminiscent of medieval mobs. Anyway, this isn't the first UK student protest against increased costs, and it certainly won't be the last.
