Thousands of students gathered at the University of London on Wednesday to take part in the ‘Cops off Campus’ demonstration. Participants marched through the streets of the British capital to protest against heavy police presence on university campuses.
Demonstrators broke through the Senate House gates on campus. After failed attempts to enter the building, the protesters began their march.
“The police tactics that we’ve seen in London and elsewhere over the last week have been extraordinary – 41 arrests, only one charge, bail conditions stopping people from gathering in public in groups of more than four. Police brutality that has never been seen on campus before,” one of the protestors told RT’s Ruptly video news agency.
