STATEMENT OF SUPPORT FOR STUDENT DIRECT ACTION

As academics and teachers at Cambridge University, we wish to express
our support for the peaceful direct action currently underway in the
symbolic ‘occupation’ of the Old Schools. This is a crucial moment for the
future of higher education and young people all over the country are
rightly attempting to make their voices heard and their concerns taken into
account. We call on the University to ensure that no undue force is
exercised against the students involved in the occupation. We urge the
University to take note of their demands and urge the Vice-Chancellor to
express opposition to the current government’s destructive agenda for
higher education.

  21. Professor Nicholas de Lange says:

    PS please add my name.

  22. Dr Josip Glaurdic says:

    Please add my name as well! And keep up the good fight!

  23. Robert Tombs says:

    I have been asked to sign this petition. But I shall not do so: on the whole I am in favour of an increase in British undergraduate fees – in part in the hope that it might eventually decrease the inequity of fees charged to graduate students and overseas students, and also because it ought to begin a much needed process of university reform. In any case, the alternatives seem to be worse.

    Please, add my name to the list

  38. Dr Berry (Boris) Groisman says:

    Although, the occipation had ended, I do insist on adding our names to the list! Please!
    Personally, I did support the occupation while it was taking place (also attending all actions of protest including the occupation) as I do support it now. I just was not aware of the existance of this list. There is nothing wrong, therefore, in adding my name retroactive.

  39. Priya says:

    Please see note above: I seem to have received a whole batch of requests dating back to December 4 only today. There is not much point in updating the letter now, but please feel free to join CACHE
