Protests at Cambridge University against Strauss-Kahn's union speech

London, Sat, 10 Mar 2012 ANI

London, Mar 10 (ANI): Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn had to be bundled through a side door as a crowd of 200 student protesters objected to his speech at the Cambridge University Union.


Protesters assembled outside the Cambridge Union Society as Dominique Strauss-Khan, who was accused of sexual assault in the US, delivered a talk to students


Strauss-Kahn gave his speech on Friday night at the world-famous debating society of the university.


Security was tight at the sold-out event and spectators were not admitted unless they surrendered their phones and agreed to be searched, the Daily Mail reports.


Campaigners claimed the invite to Strauss-Khan displays a 'callous desire' by the student body to 'exploit gender crime allegations in the service of controversy'


Demonstrators tried to scale fences at the back of the building to interrupt the event and police carried two of them away.


A police spokeswoman said a 19-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of assaulting police and a 23-year-old woman arrested on suspicion of breaching the peace. (ANI)
