Student Protests in Spain

TeacherSolidarity.com reports:

"Ten people were arrested in Valencia, Spain as they protested against education cuts and police repression.

Last Wednesday students of the Luis Vives school in Valencia demonstrated against education cuts, made by the Valencia government. In particular, the students complained that they had to take blankets to the school because of a lack of heating. The young people were met with police repression, with many students complaining of police brutality, and reports of students as young as 12 being attacked by police. As a result a new demonstration of teachers and pupils was called on Thursday, which blocked the main street and which resulted in the ten arrests – at least one of those arrested was a minor.”
