Students will continue the fight to keep education a public service 19.9.2011 Guardian: Comment is Free
On 9 November, student groups will mobilise in protest once more against the fundamentalism of coalition policy At their conference in Birmingham , the Liberal Democrats have been trying to draw distinctions between themselves and their coalition partners, the Conservatives. It is perhaps a testament to the magical powers of spin and public amnesia that it is even possible for them to attempt to do so. It is just 18 months since the coalition was pieced together, proclaiming itself as a "new politics". How ironic that now seems. When the Liberal Democrats voted through a tripling of tuition fees last year, they betrayed – in an almost comical fashion – their public pledge to "vote against, campaign against" any lifting of the cap. The reaction was the biggest wave of mass student mobilisation since the 1960s, with the backbone of many of the demonstrations coming from poorer school and further education (FE) students whose education maintenance allowance was being scrapped.

Fukushima protesters urge Japan to abandon nuclear power 19.9.2011 Guardian: Environment
Tens of thousands join Fukushima protest march in Tokyo amid continuing fears over radiation Tens of thousands of people marched in central Tokyo on Monday chanting "Sayonara nuclear power" and waving banners to call on Japan's government to abandon nuclear energy in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. The demonstration underscores how deeply a Japanese public long accustomed to nuclear power has been affected by the 11 March crisis, when a tsunami caused core meltdowns at three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi complex. The disaster – the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl – saw radiation spewed across a wide part of north-eastern Japan, forcing the evacuation of about 100,000 people who lived near the plant and raising fears of contamination in everything from fruit and vegetables to fish and water. "Radiation is scary," said Nami Noji, a 43-year-old mother who came to the protest on this national holiday with her four children, aged eight to 14. "There's a lot of ...

Yoshihiko Noda to emphasise need for nuclear plants in Japan at UN 19.9.2011 Asian Age: International
Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda is set to emphasise the continuing need for nuclear power plants in Japan and will pledge to ensure the highest level of operational safety during the upcoming U N conference on nuclear safety, media reports have said. Noda will adopt a different position to that of his predecessor Naoto Kan, who sought to reduce country's reliance on nuclear power in the wake of the crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant. According to the draft, Noda will tell the U N session on Thursday that his government will "raise the safety of nuclear plants to the highest level." Noda will also say, "There will be a continuing necessity to secure nuclear energy that is safe and more reliable," while promising a thorough investigation into what caused the world's worst nuclear accident in 25 years and to fully disclose information. "There is a consensus among the international community that enhancing safety measures related to nuclear energy should ...
