January 19th 2016. Hundreds of students held a #GrantsNotDebt protest in Parliament Square with shadow minister Clive Lewis MP among the speakers. Students were protesting at the government's decision to axe maintenance grants. Announced in George Osborne's Summer budget the proposal would not be debated in the Commons and instead passed by a backroom committee of just 18 MPs. The protest later moved to block Westminster Bridge causing traffic gridlock. All content is Creative Commons.
