Middlesex Philosophy Update

More news from Middlesex:

"Hello, I am writing from the Save Middlesex Philosophy petition. First of all I will give an update on the campaign; we have so far not had any reasonable communication from the management. Instead they have suspended 3 staff (Peter Osbourne, Peter Hallward, and Christian Kerslake) and 4 students for their parts in the protests. If you would like more information on this then please visit

I am also writing to request that if anyone is in London and would like to show their support could they come to the Middlesex Hendon campus either today (Thursday 27th) at 4pm or tomorrow for a two day protest. The hearing for the suspensions are on Friday so it would be great to get as many people together to show that they cannot bully their staff and students. Apologies for not giving more notice, but this has been a sudden development and it has been difficult to communicate, especially since the management seem to be trying to track our movements.

There is also a new petition specifically for the possibility to greylist the University, so if anyone with any sort of academic affiliation could sign it that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your support,
 Michael Rybarczyk"
