15-05-2011 10:10I've put together a new one double-sided A4, fold-me-in-three leaflet, about Post Traumatic Stress Response/Disorder. It describes the causes, symptoms, strategies for recovery and activist culture-conundruns, surrounding PTSR. E-mail me for a PDF to print up and scatter around squatts, resource centres, crisis centres and anywhere you think is appropriate.

06-05-2011 12:08Update on London Met Occupation ( see http://wearelondonmet.wordpress.com ) :
All the support has been really really touching. Thank you for all your love and solidarity.
It is important to stress what is going on…
In case you’re unaware, the University plans to cut 70% of the courses being offered at London Met. This is a clear, ideological attack on Higher Education. The Government’s decision to cut the HE budget by 40% is having very real, and devastating effects on the ground. For somewhere like London Met that is heavily subsidised, the impact is obviously worse. People’s lives, both students and staff, are currently being turned upside-down. Hundreds of redundancies are in process.

It is quite clear that the neoliberal model, based on fossil energy and consumerism, has reached its limits.

04-05-2011 22:38The Graduate Centre of Holloway Road Campus is currently occupied by students in protest against Vice- Chancellor Malcolm Gillies’ decision to axe 70% of courses- including Performing Arts, Philosophy and History. Gillies’ decision came as a shock a couple of weeks ago.
04-05-2011 19:05UNISON and UCU are encouraged to learn that as of this lunchtime some
of our students - in particular, Performing Arts students, have
occupied the Graduate Centre at London Met in protest against the
massive cuts to courses proposed by London Met management.
They, like us, believe these massive cuts to our course portfolio -
the loss of Performing Arts, Philosophy, History, Caribbean Studies,
Trade Union Studies, .... will irreparably damage local working class
student education and the very essence of our university.

02-05-2011 13:17Its hard to not get wrapped up in the idea a farm is merely and exclusively for producing food, although the milk was particularly delicious!, or that the animals are merely there for petting , although Dingle the pony didn't seem to mind much!, what we can see at the Wellgate Community farm is a real sense of a community and a sense of achievement.
