Protesting Education Cuts and Tuition Fees

Protesting Education Cuts and Tuition Fees

Continuing with the student protest march concerning education cuts and tuition fees, which took place on November 24th, 2010.

The protest march route was quite extensive and took the better part of the afternoon. It began from in front of the John McIntyre Building, around campus to the Cloisters and the South Front of the University, with a sit-down in the Cloisters. From there it continued down University Avenue, now with substantial police presence, down Kelvin Way, on Sauchiehall Street to Charing Cross, up to the Glasgow School of Art on Renfrew Street, to a sit down by the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on Buchanan Street, down George Street to in front of the administrative building of the University of Strathclyde (where students had occupied the building). After a long sit down (and being kettled by the Police), the march proceeded around the City Chambers to the south-east corner of George Square, where a number of people gave speeches.
