Strathclyde University is now being occupied!
“On the 27/06/11 Strathclyde University went into occupation over the proposed cuts to four departments; community educacation, geography, music and sociology. These annoucements come in the context of other student courses and servives being affected by Jim McDonalds ruthless campaign. These cuts are a clear ideological attack on the students and staff of this university.
Jim McDonald has continually refused to engagae with student and staff in any meaningful capacity. Management have made a back handed attempt to push through cuts when the majority of the student population are on holiday for the summer therefor highlighting the undemocratic procedures and lack of consulation with students and staff.
The board of management are un-elected and un-representative of the student body.
This occupation wished to oppose all cuts and to highlight the undemocratic procedures being pushed through over and over again by Jim McDonald.
No to course closures
No to staff redundancies.
No to cuts.”
