50 Photos Of The London Student Demo: The Quiet Riot

by | 25th, November 2010

THE second Student demo against fees has created more front-page headlines about violence. And once again a single photo dominates the news. The Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Guardian lead with a picture of a student ninja stood on the bonnet of a police van left in the middle of Whitehall (photo number 5).

In Student Demo 1 the violence was more acute and nine nationals newspapers led with Dominic Lipinski’s photo of a hooded youth kicking the windows of London’s Millbank Tower.

This time there was much less violence and the demonstration only captures five front-page covers. Indeed, Metro counters the Mail’s ludicrous front-page headline – “RAGE of THE GIRL RIOTERS” – with a photo of teenager Zoe Williams protecting the police van along with “girls in school uniforms who formed a daisy chain” around the vehicle.

Here are the photos – if you were there, you are very likely here:
