Student protests: Police ask colleges for demonstration details
Matthew Taylor and Jeevan Vasagar
"An officer from Scotland Yard's counter-terrorism command has contacted universities in London with a request to pass on intelligence as students prepare to step up their campaign against increases in tuition fees and education cuts in the coming weeks.
"A fresh wave of occupations and demonstrations is expected to take place and student leaders say that town halls and civic buildings will be occupied in direct action protests.
"In an email, an officer from Counter Terrorism Command working on the Prevent programme, which aims to tackle extremism, said the Met anticipated a "renewed vigour" at protests that could target finance departments to highlight concern over funding cuts. It advises drafting contingency plans against student occupations."
