UK students to hold fresh protests against education reforms

British students are planning more protest rallies against the government’s planned reforms in the higher education.

According to a report by the Guardian, the student campaigners are expected to hold a day of action on November 26.

Meanwhile, a two-day strike will be held in February which is expected to see thousands of students walk out of lectures at campuses across the country.

The planned protests come as part of student campaigns aimed at voicing anger over the Tory government’s policies including the controversial austerity measures.
