Police pepper-spray protesting students in Sydney – including a legally blind girl

 A protest against the Australian government’s education reforms in Sydney has turned violent, as security forces pepper-sprayed dozens of student activists – including a legally blind girl.
The students are protesting in Australia against soaring education fees, and cuts to the education system in the country.
About 40 students attempted to enter a lecture by Education Minister Christopher Pyne, and were dispersed by police.
