Students protest against fees

STUDENTS at Boston College will be staging a demonstration tomorrow morning to protest against what they say is an unfair rise in university tuition fees.

Around 300 learners will be outside the college at 9.30am to kick off the protest, before they walk into town.

One student said ahead of the event that he thought it was important to protest to make a stand against a Government proposal to increase tuition fees yet again, after they were hiked to £9,000 a year at some institutions in the UK.
