“Complete Educational Shutdown”

5 Dec. 2010
From BBC News West Yorkshire:

“Leeds students urge city strike on tuition fees”

Spokesman Ian Pattinson said [Leeds protesters] hope for a “complete educational shutdown”.

Thousands of students have taken part in marches in the city to show their opposition to government plans to increase tuition fees.

The key vote on lifting the cap on tuition fees will be held on Thursday.

The Lib Dems have come under heavy pressure after pledging before the election to vote against any fee rise.
