A Riot of Their Own: Fighting Cuts in Britain

Demonstration and strikes

It sounds like you have some good plans in the works. Certainly, a connection with the French student groups might be helpful because of their experience. Indeed, you might want to look beyond France for other student groups. Coordinated Europe-wide demonstrations and strikes would be effective. Economic boycotts or other actions would make an impression on the pocketbooks of the economic elites. Violence should be avoided, but what can you do? You can't control everyone.
