Majority of students protested peacefully

I, like many of my fellow students, attended the USI march in Dublin city to voice my dissatisfaction at the prospect of the proposed hike in registration fees and possible cuts to third-level grants.
I do not believe that any student who attended this protest arrived at Government Buildings with violent intentions.
When 15,000 pensioners marched on Leinster House in 2008 were they met with the same garda force as the students encountered on Wednesday as the protest was concluding?
