The Guardian on Middlesex


A bit of coverage in The Guardian on the Middlesex occupation:

Universities and colleges hit by industrial action

“Members of the University and College Union (UCU) at King’s College, London, are in the second day of a walkout over a £27m cuts programme at the institution, while at Middlesex approximately 30 students are occupying the university’s Mansion building in protest at the planned closure of the philosophy department. (…)

The 30 Middlesex students have been staging a peaceful sit-in since Tuesday morning calling for the university to reverse its decision to shut the world-renowned philosophy department. Anindya Bhattacharyya, an MA student, said they had mainly been studying, having rigged up a pulley system to get their books into the building.”
