  • Description

    Hundreds of students and police clashed on Wednesday (1 March) in Madrid in running battles near the University campus -- the worst violence in the capital since the bloody confrontation at the University six weeks ago.

    Dozens of arrests were reported as police chased students through boulevards and narrow back streets leading from the campus into the city. Student leaders had called for a nationwide "Day of Struggle" earlier in the day to reinforce their long-standing demands for academic reform and greater student freedom.

    Police used mounted patrols and water cannon to disperse groups of students. Visnews cameraman Mike Gore was there to shout the story.
