Thugs ruined student protest

The so-called student protesters who became involved in clashes with the gardai should be ashamed of themselves.
The protest was well organised by the Union of Students in Ireland, only to be hijacked by groups who expressed no concern for the rising education fees and undermined the entire event.
Waving Sinn Fein and Socialist Workers Party flags, these protesters came with the sole intention of causing violence. They do not represent the legitimate protesters who are genuinely concerned with the potential effects of higher fees and the future of the country.
