Springtime: The New Student Rebellions

by Clare Solomon & Tania Palmieri (eds)
£9.99   paperback  Verso (2011)

Springtime: The New Student Rebellions by Clare Solomon & Tania Palmieri (eds) The autumn and winter of 2010 saw an unprecedented wave of student protests across the UK, in response to the coalition government's savage cuts in state funding for higher education, cuts which formed the basis for an ideological attack on the nature of education itself. Involving universities and schools, occupations, sit-ins and demonstrations, these protests spread with remarkable speed. Rather than a series of isolated incidents, they formed a movement that replicated a phenomenon that has gone global: from the US to Europe, students have been in the vanguard of protest against governments' harsh austerity measures.
 
Tracing these worldwide protests, this new book explores how the protests spread and how they were organized, through the unprecedented use of social networking media such as facebook and twitter. It looks, too, at events on the ground, the demonstrations, and the police tactics: kettling, cavalry charges and violent assault.
 
From Athens to Rome, San Francisco to Millbank, this new book looks at how the new student protests developed into one of the most potent movements for change in our time.
