Sheffield students March on Clegg and occupy
Over 300 students marched the 2 miles from Sheffield University to Nick Clegg's constituency office on November 30th.
As we assembled, the police gave us all a Section 14 Public Order Act notice trying to restrict protesters to only 100 at a designated site 50 yards away from Clegg's office.
Neither police threats nor snow could prevent students voicing their anger against Clegg's broken pledge to scrap fees.
School students from King Edward's School in Clegg's Hallam constituency had walked out for a second time.
Of course, Clegg wasn't at home, despite chants of "Where's our MP?" and "Answer the phone". Marching back, a spontaneous occupation of the Richard Roberts building by around 100 students has started the second occupation at Sheffield University in a week.
