Fourth student protest planned for eve of Commons vote
Jo Adetunji"The National Union of Students has announced plans for further mass student protests on the eve of a crucial Commons vote on university tuition fees.
"The union has called for students across the country to begin demonstrations on 8 December.
"A further rally by students and union officials is planned on the day of the vote before the group lobbies MPs inside Westminster in an effort to persuade them against voting for a rise in fees.
"If the vote passes, the NUS said it plans to organise a vigil with 9,000 candles, representing the government's controversial plans to raise tuition fees by up to £9,000 a year."
