On Friday 16th March, several hundred students marched through Cambridge to demonstrate against the victimisation of a single student who has been handed the punishment of two-and-a-half years suspension for his role in a peaceful protest earlier in the academic year. This outrageous punishment was a clear signal from the University authorities that students should not step out of line and that protests against education cuts will not be tolerated. Meanwhile, the 500-strong demonstration sent an equally clear message that the mass of students will stand by their victimised peers in solidarity.
