British students to face plastic bullets if things get out of hand

A mass protest is being organized by the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts, which said it expected 10,000 people to join in a march from Bloomsbury in central London to the center of the city Wednesday.

Some activists from the anti-capitalist Occupy London Stock Exchange movement in London said they would join the march, according to local reports.

For the first time ever, British citizens will face plastic bullets tomorrow. The same type of bullets which have caused deaths in past riots in Northern Ireland.

London police authorize plastic bullets if riot erupts at protest

“London police were authorized to fire plastic bullets to quell riots and dozens of letters were sent out to activists warning of arrest for "criminal or antisocial behavior" ahead of planned mass student protests on Wednesday.”
