Students protest outside Topshop

Students staged a sit down protest on Oxford Street today to draw attention to the “savage cuts” that face higher education.

Students held a “public lecture” outside Topshop before linking themselves together with rope and sitting down outside the shop’s entrance.

The students held their protest outside Topshop, claiming that the shop’s owner, Philip Green, is a tax avoider, yet still advises the government on state spending.

A spokesperson for the protest said: “Based on these facts, we contend that the Government proposals for our education system are ideological and seek privatisation and commodification of education.”

Topshop have been contacted for comment and this article will be updated shortly.
