Parliament Square, London, 9th december 2010. Yesterday, on December 9, I went with a group of PhD students and professors from Goldsmiths College, University of London, to the organized protest against education cuts and an increase of some 300% in university taxes that have been proposed by the British government. It was a cold, sunny day. It was 12:30pm when we began to walk from Trafalgar Square to Parliament Square. The police had cut off access to various streets, so we had to take a roundabout path to get there. Once we got there we were singing, walking along, talking with strangers, sharing impressions, reading placards (‘Even Sadam Hussein believes in free education’, ‘No ifs no buts no education cuts’, ‘The Libcons have put the N in the CU*TS’…).
