Wow! This is completely insane!!!! Brave people!!!! Good for them!
Now, would this ever happen here in the U.S.? Or are people scared of being taken to Camp FEMA?

Let's not forget :
a) You have a chance of education (unlike many poorer continents)
b) A degree has become 'the norm' - therein lies the problem - hardly recognised now unless it's a first.
c) America has been charging for education for years - much more than us

Unfortunately, it looks as though even the bbc (for the most part) have completely focused on Charlie and Camilla and ignored the fact that a protestor was beaten to death by the police.

I'm proud of these students!
Not because they are anarchists but because they seen something they want and they fight for it. If we learned to roll over at the whip of politicians they will learn to whip harder. I can't say the same about many other nations who are too afraid to fight against the tyranny that holds their nations back.
I honestly don't know how they feel because my tuition costs a mere $3,000 with books and everything. I would be angry if my tuition was raised by 300% as well.

Just wanted to point out, how the state of affairs is very reminiscent of a time not too long ago.
Riots, bad economy, lack of satisfaction with elected officials, this was all happening in the 70's, and we got great social statements out of it.
The sex pistols lyrics were heartfelt poignant. Not like the BS nonsense we hear today in pop culture.
Anarchy In The Uk is as much of a rallying cry today as it ever was 30 years ago.

Someone dares 'tell' Americans something.
Guess what, the world doesn't turn on what the USA says or does, your nothing special at all.
I'll say what I want, because that my 'friend' is my right and no jumped up septic is ever going to make me do anything, some have tried and they were promptly put in their place.
Like far too many Americans you seem intent on putting your nose in everyone elses business but hate anyone commenting on anything 'Amercan'.
Hypocrisy and pathetic.
Your arrogance and conceit is a disgrace to all those American's who know what dignity and respect are really about, concepts obviously alien to you.
The easiest way to get 'Americans' rioting?
Shut all the burger bars, the US's one offering to world culture!
