Middlesex UCU have finally made a move against management.
an emergency meeting of Middlesex University’s UCU branch voted to condemn the disciplinary action against staff and students, demand the immediate reinstatement of postgraduate philosophy programmes and recruitment – and go into official dispute with the management if the staff suspensions are not lifted by 12 noon on Wednesday

Now the ever active John Protevi has suggested that this be extended for those who were not physically able to be there… The ‘I am Spartacus’ moment of the campaign…
Both also have one of those lolcats
