British students protest tuition fee hikes

Protesters face the police as thousands of students protest against tuition fees at Whitehall in London, Wednesday, Nov. 24, 2010. Several thousand students protested against government plans to triple tuition fees, two weeks after a similar demonstration sparked a small riot. College and university students across the country held marches and sit-ins to oppose the decision to increase university fees to 9,000 pounds ($14,000) a year, a key plank in the government's deficit-cutting austerity measures.
