'Generation Angry'

I've started revision in earnest now, so suddenly the desire to blog has returned, sparking massive anxiety about time-wasting and the possibility of failing all my exams. Hell.

New wave of University Occupations
UCL went back into occupation this week, and have been dogged by threats of CCTV monitoring and the punishment of individual students by management. On the positive side they've taken over a fantastic space: a corridor of administrative offices on the ground floor of the South side of the main quad, off Gower Street. If you have a connection with UCL, do protest against the attempt by management to penalise individuals for a collective movement. Sign their petition here, or email the mega-rich provost Malcolm Grant at malcolm.grant@ucl.ac.uk. Rex Knight, UCL's Senior Administrative Officer, is also involved in the legal action be threatened against occupiers: his email is rex.knight@ucl.ac.uk.
