This is a short video aimed to show my experience of the 9th Dec Tuition Fee protest. The mainstream media coverage of the demonstration focused on the violence of the students and failed to explain the full story. Yes there was violence - and doubtless a small number did just attend to cause trouble - but the majority of those who suffered at the hands of the police were just innocent protesters trying to leave Parliament sq after all exits were blocked. I, like over 1000 others, was kettled on Westminster bridge until 11.30pm after arriving in Parliament sq at 2pm. We live in a country that prides itself as an ardent upholder of human and civil rights, yet many of those like me who attended to exercise their rights of freedom of expression, freedom of speech and freedom of assembly was arbitrarily punished for their involvement in the protest. As the girl at the end of the film states, 'Something has to change.'
