The Middlesex University Philosophy student uprising. London, UK
On the eve of May 20th philosophy students and professors staged a sit-in in the university library
in protest against the proposed closure of the Philosophy Department. Students and members of staff had previously occupied the main admin building and this sit-in was another attempt to make the management at
Middlesex University listen to their demands for a reassessment of the proposed closure.
The same day the occupation ended, the management suspended several studenst and members of staff,
any hearing. The suspension were later upheld at a hearing the following Friday.
