Yesterday's demonstration

Hope all the South East London contingents made it home safely from yesterday's demonstration in London on the day the Government voted to increase student fees. Goldsmiths students met up with London South Bank University students and marched together into town via Waterloo Bridge. At the end of the night, the last protestors were kettled on Westminster Bridge before being dispersed to Waterloo.

Here's a few local banners (photos taken as marchers entered Trafalgar Square at lunchtime).

The University for Strategic Optimism, initiated by people from Goldsmiths

Lewisham People Before Profit (who incidentally are holding their AGM next week - 7.15pm on 13th December at The Broca, Coulgate St, SE4):

Defend LSBU, Defend Education...

News tonight that the Goldsmiths occupation in New Cross has restarted, after management regained control of the library yesterday while many people were demonstrating.
