Police assault on democracy continues!"

Protesters yesterday were heavily-manhandled by the police; by none other than our old friends the TSG - well maybe not so much friends; but they arrested students yesterday and last night after a peaceful protest was held outside a London university which had been hosting a lecture by Tory David Willetts, the universities and science minister.

Willetts had been delivering the Neville Butler Memorial Lecture at the School of Oriental and African Studies on social sciences research and longtitudinal studies (SOAS), while student activists and trade unionists staged a protest outside against the government's education cuts.

Protests subject to such unwanted and unwarranted violence has now become commonplace, repeated too often in the past half year and always our young people and dissenters are on the receiving end.
