Britain's capital London and the city of Manchester were hit by anarchy and chaos Saturday as thousands of students took to the streets in anti tuition fee protests.
In Westminster, Central London where back in December police injured and arrested scores of anti-fee rise protestors, students and trade unionists launched a huge thousands-strong rally chanting anti-government slogans, while, at the same time they adopted some measures to avoid clashes with police.
This time, demonstrators who had tasted the heavy-handed 'kettling' of the police, which triggered violent reactions from students last year, devised a mobile phone application to inform one another of police cordons avoiding clashes.'
