No Cuts! No Fees! No Corporate Universities!

Sydney Student Protest: March 25, 2015

“No Ifs! No Buts! No Education Cuts!”

Students around the country took to the streets yet again to protest Education Minister Chris Pyne’s proposed deregulation of the fees system. It was an almost surreal experience, the police officers escorting protesters on the road while the students themselves held banners and flags chanting slogan after slogan, orchestrated by loudspeakers and hoarse voices.

While the march from the entrance of the University of Sydney to the UTS wasn’t as adrenaline-packed and vicious as the attack on Julia Bishop last year, you could definitely still feel the electricity in the air.
