The university and political action

In light of today’s protest against the recent actions of the University of Nottingham, I thought this document might be pertinent. Entitled ‘Who Rules Columbia’, it charts the objections of the students at Columbia during the student uprising in 1968. While clearly the issues raised are specific to a particular time and place, it’s an interesting example of students who are protesting, not just against the actions of a university, but against the structures and connections that sustain those actions.
