Student Protests

Admittedly I missed all the excitement of the student protest yesterday as I was in another part of UTS. But I still got to leave early once the students had occupied the Chancellory.

Having been a student I am sympathetic to the reasons for the protest. 25% is just too high an increase in HECS and the government has ensured the Higher Education sector is now dependent on full-fee paying International students to maintain sustainability.

I'll try and find some links to the protest:

>Some good photos here

> UTS turned pink

> A brief report from the frontline

And in other news, I found a link to Paul Kidd's site. Paul was a journalism student I shared a tutorial with at UTS
