Nottingham defends democracy
NOTTINGHAM UNIVERSITY students have formed a "Freedom of speech fighters" group and are demonstrating at the university at midday on 21 February to defend the democratic right to protest.
During a peaceful student protest, the university called the police onto campus resulting in the arrest of an innocent student. The university banned another student from the university library during exams because of his campaign to reduce library card replacement costs.
Students campaigning against increasing accommodation fees, and decreasing porters, chefs and breakfasts in halls were fined £300 and their petition was disallowed. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
