A small protest against NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen's lecture titled “The Future of Peace Support Operations”, happened onTuesday 17^th November at the Old College. The about twenty protesters were fenced in by the police on the pavement outside the University of Edinburgh building.
Police cited health and safety as reason for fencing in the protesters though the police first wanted to fence the protesters in in the courtyard - no busy traffic there! More health & safety concerns for the NATO secretary general it seems.
Students identity was checked by police on the way into university.
