Nottingham Students Against Fees and Cuts spent the evening of the 1st February attempting to raise awareness of the links between tax avoidance and cuts to education. On a busy night in the Victoria Centre, which had been organised and advertised as a special ‘late-night student shopping spree,’ roughly fifteen people targeted tax-avoiding Topshop by handing out subverted Topshop flyers within the store, which made explicit the link between cuts to education and tax avoidance. A game of cat and mouse around the store ensued in which security tried to pick out the young protestors from the student shoppers and remove them from the Victoria Centre. Having all been marched off the premises and with security blocking the entrances, the group managed to sneak back in through an unguarded entrance to distribute their remaining leaflets. As each protestor was forcibly removed once again, the fuss caused by security gave us far more attention from student shoppers and all the leaflets were distributed. We have to thank security and the police for finding our presence so problematic that they had to remove us, it definitely increased interest in the cause!
