Occupy Cambridge

This afternoon, Cambridge Defend Education held a speak-out outside of the lecture hall to address the question ‘the idea of the university’.

More than 60 students and staff participated. After that, protesters made their way into the lecture hall. As soon as Willetts took the stage a human microphone overbeared Willetts by telling him what their idea of the university was.

The text will follow soon.

Willetts’ refused to resume his talk on ‘the idea of the university’.

Students are now occupying the lecture hall.
