Protests over higher education reform in Hungary spread further Wednesday, even after the government made apparent concessions to students, angry about planned tuition fees and commitments to work in Hungary. Many wore roses to symbolise what they call the 'Student Winter Rose revolution.' AFP PHOTO / ATTILA KISBENEDEK (Photo credit should read ATTILA KISBENEDEK/AFP/Getty Images)
