Thank you so much to everyone who has written to protest the closure of Philosophy at Middlesex. The international support for the campaign has been a tremendous boost; Middlesex students & colleagues are mobilising quickly, and the administration now has a real fight on their hands.
The campaign blog has been moved tohttp://savemdxphil.com/ ; it includes regular updates, press links and a small sampling of the many hundreds of letters of support we've received. We'll be reorganising and expanding it in the coming days.
Earlier this afternoon (Tues 4 May) around 40 students decided to occupy the Middlesex Trent Park campus, after Dean Ed Esche and Deputy Vice-Chancellor Margaret House cancelled a meeting scheduled for 10:30am. See http://savemdxphil.com/2010/05/04/students-in-occupation-in-the-boardroom/ and the campaign Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=119102561449990) for more information.
If you can get to London tomorrow, especially if you're planning to take part in one of the various strikes & UCU rallies, PLEASE COME TO SUPPORT THE STUDENT OCCUPATION and to celebrate Philosophy at Middlesex at our annual Philosophy Society party, Weds 5 May from 4:30pm. The party/rally will be taking place in The Drawing Room (M005) in the Mansion Building of the Trent Park campus;directions below,
