York students join G8 protest

Three University of York students took part in the protests against the G8 summit in Heiligendamm, Germany. The demonstrations were marked by violent clashes between police and protestors.

The York students, who asked not to be named, were stopped by German police after hanging an anarchist flag from the scaffolding of a building. All three are believed to have links to “anti-authoritarian” campus society Freesoc and two of the students took part in the protests at Faslane Naval base over the Easter holidays, in which nine York students were arrested.
