23-02-2013 00:51

A ring of steel...
On Tuesday 19th February 2013, French Far Right MEP Marine LePen dared to show her face in Cambridge, on the invitation of the Cambridge Debating Union, whom were clearly up to their usual sensationlist tricks again.

About two hundred activists turned up and surrounded the building for the whole afternoon, effectively beseiging it, so there was nowhere for Madame LePen to run!

22-02-2013 19:29

What does UEA have against protesters?

22-02-2013 12:55

Earlier this month, the University of East Anglia dropped a disciplinary case against two students for taking part in an anti-tax avoidance protest. I was one of those students, and although the case was dropped it was a perfect example of the creeping criminalisation of protest that’s taking place on university campuses and throughout the country.

There are still some unanswered questions about the case: why did the university wait three months to pursue us for a peaceful protest? Why did the university push the case in the first place when the Disciplinary Officer dropped it almost instantly after talking to me in person? And why did the evidence document rely entirely on the word of an employee of the multinational company being protested against?
