Student protests in London and Los Angeles

On Wednesday, students gathered to protest against rises in student tuition - in London and in Los Angeles. While 50,000 turned out on the streets of London, far fewer protested out at Long Beach.

While it is admirable that such a large number feel motivated enough to miss tutorials, Cash in the Attic and Countdown, it is depressing to contrast the ensuing riot and Long Beach's 'protest carnival'.

The Los Angeles Times has the pictures:
